“Frank” is dead!

David Dingman-Grover had most of his tumor removed Feb. 2 at the Skull Base Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The family learned the results of a biopsy on the tumor at midnight Monday. The family was crowded around the phone on “pins and needles” waiting for the call from David’s surgeon, his mother said.

“(David) is so mellow – he’s so easygoing. He was just like, ‘Really? Great! Cool!'” Dingman-Grover said of her son’s reaction to the good news. “It’s like, ‘Honey, is that all?’ He says, ‘Did you ever think it wouldn’t be gone?'”
