Being Dad, While Fighting Cancer: Using The Life You’re Given To Give to Others

About David Wenzel

In 2013, David Wenzel was existing at rock bottom. After a miserable divorce and barely handling his cancer diagnosis, he felt he had nothing left to offer the world. But in May 2013, his closest friends gifted him a necklace with the latin phrase “Flecti Non Frangi,” inscribed on it. Translated as “To Be Bent Not Broken,” this phrase means one who can endure hardship yet still remain true to themselves.

Because of this gift, David gained the motivation to survive the painful moments of seizures, heartbreaks, and failures, while discovering that everyone, in their own way, is bent, but no one is ever truly broken. David is currently sharing his redemption story with students, universities, hospitals, churches, conferences, and corporations.
