David’s Daughter

You know David Finfrock as the dependable meteorologist who brings you accurate weather information every night.  That’s who David is, but to those of us who work with him, David is also a dear friend, great husband, and loving father.

You may not know that earlier this year David’s only daughter, at the age of 34, was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I remember watching David rush out the door the day the doctor’s call came.  David’s daughter Jennifer has had a double mastectomy, and is going through chemotherapy.  She has an incredibly positive attitude — because she has two very important reasons to fight this battle — her own two children, David’s grandchildren.

Later this week on NBC5 News at 10 you will see an emotional conversation I had with David about how this has affected him and his entire family.  He talks about the horrible feeling that came over him when he first heard the word “cancer”,  and about how it feels to be helpless when your child is suffering.

And David reveals what shocked him most about the news that his daughter had breast cancer.

David wanted to do this interview leading up to the Tarrant County Race for the Cure in Ft. Worth this Saturday.  He hopes he can help other women by telling them about his own daughter’s experience.

This is an interview you won’t want to miss, this week on NBC5 News at 10.  You’ll want to watch for David, and David’s Daughter.

    I remember when Harold Taft hired David out of Texas A.&M., it doesn’t seem like 30+ years.

    He has always been a class act, a very professional broadcaster, and a role model. It made me heartsick when you mentioned the plight his daughter has been going through. My prayers’ go out to Jennifer, David, and their family.

    I look forward to watching your interview with him.
