Danny's Friends

I am writing this on behalf of the McGowan family. The McGowan's have been a part of our community for years and have helped many families when needed. Now it is time for us to help them during their time of need. Danny has been fighting cancer for over a year now. What started in his prostate has now spread to his bones, liver,lungs,lymph nodes and brain. During his battle and as sick as he is, Danny remains positive, always has a story to share and a smile on his face. Last week Danny was admitted to the hospital to undergo even more procedures and intensive chemotherapy. Before this he was going to the doctor for chemo and other treatments 3-4 times a week. The medical bills are mounting. Without Danny working and only having Gloria's paycheck to get by, they can no longer keep up with all the expenses being incurred. They have two beautiful girls,Courtney and Ashley, who both attend UCF. They have taken a leave from Publix in Orlando for at least the next two months to be home by their father's side. They now will be struggling to pay the $2,200. in rent for those months. The family has tried financially to support themselves through this very difficult time. The time has come where they no longer can do it between the insurmountable medical bills as well as their own mortgage and utilities to pay. Gloria has been employed at Frontier Elementary for the past 10 years and Danny has been working at FPL for 30 years. For 13 years Gloria was a Girl Scout leader for two separate troops and Danny coached girl's softball in the Acreage. For the past two years, we had a team that participated in the Relay for Life in Danny's honor to do our part in finding a cure. We all want Gloria, Ashley and Courtney to focus only on getting quality time with Danny without the financial worry and burden. All thought, prayers, and donations are more than appreciated.
