Dan's Medical Expenses

Our mutual friends, Dan and Ronda Gowan, are going through a medical crisis-- Dan was diagnosed with neuroscarcoidosis (https://www.cedars-sinai.edu/Patients/Health-Conditions/Neurosarcoidosis.aspx) two years ago, making it impossible for him to work.  The two front-line treatments used to-date have failed to cure his illness, so doctors have prescribed medications that are considered experimental for this particular disease.  Dan’s doctors seem to have a high-level of confidence in this treatment plan.  The medications are expensive, and due to the experimental nature, his insurance company has rejected coverage of the cost.  Dan and his wife, Ronda, have incurred additional expenses for scans, hospital stays and more.

Dan and Ronda have done everything they can to financially survive this disease that has taken so much from them, but their journey isn’t over.  Please help Dan and Ronda by contributing what you can to help them through Dan’s treatment and recovery.

You may direct any questions regarding this GoFundMe to:  Sandy Masterson, Jodi Altenhofen and/or Lisa Hostetler.

Thank you!
