Help Daniel Defeat Cancer of Parotid Gland

My beloved son Daniel, who is just 21 years, old received frightening news this past week that he has a rare form of cancer located in his Parotid Gland called Acinic Cell Carcinoma. 

Daniel just started a new job at Lowe’s and is planning to go to college in the Fall. He is a loving son, a brother to Chloe and Alexa, and a dear friend to others. He is very smart and has an amazing heart. Daniel has his entire life ahead of him. He is a fighter and is determined to kick cancer's butt!

Daniel will need to attend several doctors' appointments and undergo surgery to remove his entire Parotid Gland. He will also need plastic surgery to repair the hole in his head and neck left from the excision. Depending on the results of the scans and post-surgical tissue sampling, there is a strong possibility that Daniel will have to undergo radiation therapy as well. 

We are currently without personal transportation and rely on public transportation to get around. Without other family in the immediate area, I will have to take time off from work so I can support Daniel as he goes through this battle. It is unlikely that Daniel's health insurance will be able to cover the majority of the upcoming costs for his medical treatment. Your donations will be used to help us with costs for transportation, medical bills, and any unforeseen expenses that may arise.

If you are unable to donate, we ask that you please share this page with your friends and families.  We are also looking for anyone in the immediate area to watch over our little 13-year-old poodle, Peaches, during any upcoming overnight stays at the hospital. Rides are always appreciated as well. We can't thank you enough and we greatly appreciate you taking the time to donate, share, and support us during this time. We will keep everyone updated on how Daniel is doing in the upcoming weeks.
