Dan Stewart's Recovery

This morning a vehicle decided to try to cross the road in front of Dan while he was on his Harley on his way to work, without making sure the path was clear.  As a result Dan T-boned the car while slamming on his brakes, flipping him over the car and onto the pavement on the other side of the car. His bike is a write off, and fortunately he will be ok but it will be a long road to recovery as he needs both hands to work and has a broken wrist and likely hand. Not to mentioned very bruised and banged up.
Dan is passionate about his family and his business that he has worked day and night at building for just over a year. With 3 boys and his amazing wife on Maternity the struggle is about to get real.
Being the Owner and Sole Operator of Man Made Barber Dan has a lot of obligations when it comes to keeping his shop operating 6 days a week, being sure bills are paid and his family is cared for...  And he has done an amazing job doing so.
In a blink of an eye everything he has worked so proudly for, with his wife by his side, has come to a stand still.
I am sure they are both in shock with what took place just hours ago, and although grateful that Dan is still here to tell his story, there is no doubt the panic and stress on how they are going to pay Shop Expensives and Survive as a Family will soon set in hard.
 My husband Jamie, who is a childhood friend of Dan's, and I can't think of a more deserving family to be helped. I had the pleasure of getting to know Dan and Chali for just over 2 years and they are both extremely hard working, kind hearted and in a blink of an eye would give you the shirts of their backs. We have decided to put the GoFundMe page together for them as we know they would never on their own be the one's to ask for help... In fact they would still give you the shirts of their backs this very moment.
Please, anything to help ease this burden that unfairly was served to them this morning would be beyond greatly appreciated.
