Des Moines’ Dave Rodda is the kind of guy that makes the world a better place.  He’s got an amazing story and we just want to brag up on him a little bit.

Over the past few months, Dave has been working out, losing weight, training hard, and raising money for Above + Beyond Cancer.  Why?  Because he believes in a living a healthy lifestyle and pushing himself above and beyond anything he ever thought possible.  We here at Above + Beyond Cancer know that 2/3 of all cancers are preventable, and we salute people like Dave who are proactive in preventing the disease.

The Transformation
