About David Brown:
A tragic turn of events when David Brown was in his early 20s led to his weight gain as an adult. David was born in Oklahoma City and raised in Yukon, Oklahoma with two younger siblings. At age 22, while earning a communications degree at Oklahoma City University, David got married. Just six months after the wedding, his new wife had a seizure and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. While the cancer was in remission, she became pregnant, but lost the baby in the third trimester. She went on to have two daughters, but her cancer ultimately returned as stage 4 brain cancer and she passed away nine years after they were married, leaving David with their two young daughters, then four and six years old. Twelve years later, David remarried and had a third daughter, but put on 200 pounds since his first wife’s cancer diagnosis, weighing 409 pounds at his heaviest. The father of three girls (ages 5, 15 and 18) also suffered from sleep apnea, high blood pressure, hypertension, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. David now looks forward to keeping the weight off so he can travel, water ski, play tennis and keep up with his active family, and prove that he is stronger than his story.
