We're happy to report that eleven-year old David Dingman-Grover has a clean bill of health. Three years ago, doctors found a cancerous tumor on his brain the size of a grapefruit. Last year, after learning that KISS is David's favorite band, Ellen DeGeneres asked if KISS would agree to meet David as a birthday surprise on her show. "David's story and spirit was such an inspiration," Paul remembers, "we immediately said yes." The meeting was quickly arranged for the show and left many viewers in tears. The tumor, nicknamed "Frank," after the monster Frankenstein, was removed a year ago.
