It takes a village; Let's Help Dan!

DANCING DAN Aukofer was admitted to the Waukesha Memorial Hospital ICU earlier today. After going to the ER, it was found that Dan has a tear between the inner and outer linings of his aorta. This is not surgically repairable. The only way to help this is for Dan to remain in the ICU for an unknown amount of time! Dan needs to rest and the medical staff will help him with medication. The purpose is to lower his blood pressure and keep it low with the medication. During this time he needs all of our prayers!!We all know it is very expensive to spend even one day in the ICU and they don't know how many total days he will be there.

Dan does not have real good insurance and will end up with very large medical bills after this stay in the ICU. It is something that would add stress to Dan's life and stress would undoubtedly raise his blood pressure. NOT GOOD! I know there are many people out there who love and respect our brother Dan, as we do. Let's save Dan and Debbie from all the stress and raise money to cover the medical expenses not covered by insurance.

All funds raised will go directly to Dan and Debbie to cover all expenses. Please donate whatever you can because any amount will help. I also have to ask for all of you to share this with everyone you know. Please use any and all of your social media accounts to pass the word. I believe there are very few people around who deserve our help more than they do. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and doing what you can. Even if helping is just sharing this with everyone you know.
