I am Dan Zusman's sister and I don't know where to begin, as I've never had to ask for financial help from a community I don't even know.
Dan was diagnosed with Melanoma Stage 4 cancer in 2020 that has metastasized. If that wasn't enough, in 2021 he was met with more misfortune. He suffered a Bilateral Stroke and deals with its many side effects daily. One of his greatest challenges is that he is barely able to walk. Most recently Dan had to have a toe amputated on each foot due to his diabetes, and another hospital stay due to complications of catching Covid-19.
As of January 1, 2022 Dan has separated from his employment with the Portland Timber's. This creates a huge financial burden for Dan. Medical bills and day to day living expenses are piling up.
When you read these types of stories you hope it never happens to you or your family. Unfortunately hope is not enough sometimes.
Dan having to deal with all of this, is what has led me to reach out to all of you. Anything you can donate would be so greatly appreciated, and certainly help make life a little easier for Dan, while he continues to fight the big fight.
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.
