Wow! I am a member of this relay event and have known mr mangum for a few years that he has been involved. What people do not know is he was not the one in charge of counting our money nor do people know our accountant quit and left without any notice and she was in charge of keeping books. Also, our supposed Relay staff member was FIRED weeks before our event bye the American Cancer Society!! But, you don't hear about that part.... mr. mangum was the chair so guess since he was in charge they go after him but this is unreal and the other people should be mentioned instead of junk like this.

I am very saddened to read this. I participate in Relay for Life, and have for the past three years. My son recieved two really expensive remote control trucks as gifts, and instead of taking one back to the store, he had his aunt print off tickets and both of my children sold them at Relay. It burns me up to think that the money my children helped raise, and that others gave too, was being pocketed by David. I thought better of him. People like him make honest people think twice about giving. I agree with a comment someone else made...and I think after his prison stint, he should be made to care for cancer patients, who are the people he stole from.

All you folks feeling sorry for the criminal and crying put him in jail....... WAKEUP, IF WE HAD A DECENT HEALTH CARE SYSTEM HE WOULD BE STEALING SOMETHING ELSE!

Isn't this the second time for this charity? Not everyone can start and run charities or business...... you must have checks and balances to protect yourself from criminals. People the modern day criminals don't have horns and ugly faces!

10 years in prison!!! After he gets out he should have to be around cancer survivors helping them in any way.

It really takes a sorry person to steal monies for CANCER research. Hopefully he does not get this dreadful disease and need these monies to help him with his illness and there be none there due to his taking it.

From the look of his nose, looks like some Cancer Society Members got hold of him before the police showed up.
