Dimas has been following his dreams his entire life. As a child, he wanted to be a professional baseball player. He worked hard and was drafted by the LA Dodgers as a pitcher. After a rotator cuff injury ended his professional baseball career, he moved to Florida and pursued another passion, real estate. Along the way, he married the love of his life and had two wonderful daughters. Dimas is always sure to share his appreciation for these bright moments and to acknowledge the work it took to achieve them. What shows Dimas’ true character, though, is how he also finds ways to persevere and show appreciation for the very difficult times in his life.
In 2011, a short while after Dimas became a father for the second time, he began experiencing nagging pains in his chest and lower abdomen. Several months and numerous tests later, the doctors diagnosed him with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or NHL. Dimas was shocked. While he knew something was wrong, cancer had never occurred to him.
