David exited this world on March 14, 2015. His services were held on March 29, 2015. In keeping with his desire to educate the world on his experience our family taped his memorial celebration to share with the world. David had planned the service and the speakers. Given its 2 hours + length we are posting it in parts. Enjoy celebrating the life of David B. Oliver with his friends and family.

  1. Just read your story in the Mizzou Magazine and immediately went to the web to find your blog. Thanks for sharing your journey with us. Jack and I appreciate that you have continued to teach us even during this trying time.

  2. Dr. Oliver,
    This is Mark Eftink, MHA Residential Student 2000. I received Mizzou Magazine yesterday and was quickly flipping through it, as usual, to surprisingly see your picture and story. I had no idea of your battle with cancer. I was encouraged, however, with your positive outlook and perspective on the situation.
    Thank you for documenting your journey. It seems that these days, everyone has either had cancer in their life or knows someone close that has it. I can somewhat relate to your situation because my Mom has been going through chemo and now radiation for breast cancer.
    I want you to know how much I always appreciated working with you on projects in graduate school and learning from you. (for example, University Hospital projects with Doug Burkott and Verlene Miklich)You have greatly influenced and impacted the lives of so many of your students including myself. Kelly and I are thinking and praying for you and your family during this time. God bless you,
    Mark Eftink

  3. i had never thought about how you might experience the tapering of appointments and care after a second round of treatment. it makes perfect sense.
    Thanks..
