Dina Manzo is celebrating a lot of victories with her husband, Dave Cantin! The alum of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, recently shared that her husband is “leukemia-free” in a touching birthday tribute. Dina gushed about the love of her life and how thankful she is that he is now cancer-free. Dina and Dave got married in June of 2017.
Dina wrote on her social media, “I made a list, I wrapped it around my rose quartz and prayed for my Scorpio. You’re everything I prayed for and more. I love you @davecantin Happy Birthday Here’s to a lifetime of HAPPY HEALTHY Birthday celebrations together.” She added the hashtag, “#40andLeukemiaFREE.”
Friend and fellow OG of the RHONJ, Teresa Giudice, commented, “Happy Birthday @davecantin have the best birthday” with festive emojis.
Dina also shared photos of her trip to Capri, Italy with Dave. According to People, Dave was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia in 2011 and his doctor told him it was treatable with chemotherapy pills. It was reported that a doctor told Dave, “You’ll be back to work in a month. You’re not going to run the Boston Marathon, but you’re going to live.” A week later he returned to work and then just a few weeks later, completed the Boston Marathon.

I had no idea I would have the reaction I did to this region of Italy. The second I landed I felt like I was finally home. ?? I cried for the first hour…and many moments after. I text 2 of my sisters who have visited. They had the same story ? The energy of our Ancestors who walked this land before us is all around me. Faces I’ve never seen are so familiar. People we’ve met along the way are now extended family. I will be back, and back again. Thank you @jkplacecapri for the warm hospitality, @amazingcapritour for the spectacular day at sea and @dagelsomina for Raviolis that literally brought tears to my eyes. Ti amo ??
Dina and Dave first got together in 2015. Dina revealed over the spring that she had tied the knot with Dave on June 28th of 2017. She confirmed the exciting news on social media. Dina wrote, “The bride wore a dress from her closet, an orange blossom in her hair and carried a Calla Lily from her Malibu Garden. In front of the gorgeous Pacific, surrounded by nature and puppies, they promised to be there in good times and bad. A simple, meaningful wedding on a day chosen by the stars. … and so it is.”
Dina had previously hinted to being engaged on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live. Dina had said, “We’ve always been engaged. We got engaged once, early in our relationship, and then we both realized it was way too early. And then we got engaged again last year.” She had also hinted that the ceremony would be small and that “you’ll learn about it after.” Jeff was curious if they had already gotten married, to which Dina said to just call her “Just Dina” instead of “Dina Manzo.” Dina had joked, “I’m not Manzo anymore.”
I’m so happy for Dina and Dave, and it’s such a blessing that he’s now cancer-free. I’m wishing them a lifetime of love and happiness. I hope that Dina comes back on the RHONJ sometime, I miss her!
