Dave Carbonell is a T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia survivor and emergency medicine physician who provides medical and volunteer support for Send It since the very first trip. At 28 years old when he was diagnosed, he suffered from isolation, doubt, and disillusionment that drove him to help other young adults with cancer. He now advises on the Send It board in addition to his roles as Medical Director and program staff. He is an avid mountain biker, moto rider and skier. He loves to discuss the unique qualities and consistencies of different types of dirt. Dave lives in San Rafael with his lovely partner, Nikki, and works at Sutter Lakeside Hospital as well as Healdsburg District Hospital.
