See the story of the 16-year-old David Langton-Gilks, who stunned society with his courage
16 year old David stunned his family and society with his courage after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. David Langton-Gilks fought the disease for five years, until the cancer won the final battle. When doctors told him he would die within a few weeks, he amazed everyone by saying “You can not win all the battles”, report from Dailymail.
David fell into a coma two weeks ago and died on the morning of 14th August – six weeks after doctors expected that he will die.
Sasha, David’s mother, revealed that she found her son’s legacy. He wanted all his possesions to be shared between his brother Rufus and his sister Holly. And his collection of jellybeans he bequeathed to his little sister.
Having been established in early June that the state of David is incurable, he decided to give up the chemotherapy.
However, David desperately tried to live up until his school prom, which was at June 28. Fortunately, he managed to achieve his goal.
A limo came to take David on the night of his prom. A charity organization secured the fancy vehicle. And during the prom ceremony David won a special award for “most optimistic person.”
Another one of David’s death wishes was that he should be cremated and his ashes scattered in the local pub.
David’s spiritually growth and positive attitude amazed and touched everyone who had the chance to meet him. He often repeated how funny it is that we begin to realize the meaning of life, just when we are about to lose it.
