Help Dan fight cancer!

My dad was diagnosed with a rare cancer in the sinus cavity/brain (Adenocarcinoma of Ethmoid Sinus). On September 11th, he went in for a 16 hr surgery. Although we still have a long road ahead of us, his test results are coming back positive as far as the healing process. We are so grateful for this!


What Happened

Since March 2018, Dan was experiencing major migraines. He went to the doctor numerous times just for them to tell him that it was just a severe sinus infection.

Fast forward to August 6th, Dan was at work and taking his usual nap during lunch. After waking up and going back to his desk to turn on his computer, he doesn't remember anything until he woke up at the hospital. According to his boss, He found Dan having a seizure at his desk and called 911 immediately. After a long day/night in the hospital, the doctors ended up seeing a large mass starting at the bridge of his nose and proturding into his brain. Dan finally got a biopsy the next morning and would be notified in about a week what kind of tumor it was. Dan will be needing Chemo & Radiation after recovering from his surgery.


A little it about Dan the Man

Dan is 56 yrs old. He works at UCLA in cabinetry and has been there for 36 years. Even though he works at UCLA, he is a huge USC fan (Don't worry..deep down we have a soft spot for UCLA as well lol) Dan truly is a happy camper! He loves to travel with his wife, Olga, and his family. Some of his favorite places to go is Yosemite, Carpinteria State Beach, and the Kern River for fishing. He is a great husband and loving father to his two kids, Eric & Breanna. Not to mention also, the best grandpa to his two furry grandkids, Bentley & Brody.


Our "Thank you"

I'd love to say thank you in advance for all the help, love, and prayers on behalf of my family and I. This whole situation has totally turned our world upside down. We never thought in a million years that this would be our next journey as a family. We can't say THANK YOU enough for all the prayers, visits, and good company by our friends & family. Please continue to pray for my dad to make full recovery.
