Darius Stevens was dealt a bad hand in life soon as he approached 40. He had lost his job, all his money, and was diagnosed with skin cancer. But, despite the unfortunate turn of events, he still maintained a positive outlook in life. After all, he had two healthy beautiful daughters, a loving and supporting wife, and some amazing friends.
Knowing that he had so much to be thankful for, and seeing that their backyard could do some work, he set out to do something that even a healthy, young man would have a hard time doing. Best of all, his wife was completely clueless about what he had planned.
How His Journey Began
Stevens, or Dare as he likes to be called, lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife and their two daughters. He’s a filmmaker and screenwriter who found himself struggling as his 40th birthday approached.
An Extremely Tough Year
2014 was a pretty tough year for Stevens and his family. Not only did he lose his job, he also lost much of his money, and even their family’s home. And, given his debts that racked up to more than $20,000, he couldn’t afford to pay for his insurance policies anymore, which were then canceled soon after. But, that wasn’t the worst part.
