Support for Dan Copes

A few weeks ago, my brother (Dan) was diagnosed with Stage IV Adrenocortical Carcinoma (Adrenal Cancer), which is very rare and difficult to treat. The cancer has spread throughout Dan's abdomen, affecting his Adrenal Gland, Pancreas, Liver, and more. The road to recovery is a long one, but I know Dan has the strength and life force to get there. I am raising funds to help with medical bills, quality of life aids, and other costs associated with treatment. 

Anyone that has met my brother likely knows him as a person who is kind-hearted, genuine, intelligent, and non-judgemental. He has always been a loving person, both towards other people and animals, seeking to cause no harm and ease other's troubles. I've always been impressed by Dan's desire and capacity to learn, like when he went to China for a few months and came back having made the decision to become fluent in Mandarin. Perhaps one of my favorite attributes is Dan's love of music and his musical ability. He has brought so much joy to me - and I know to others as well - with his guitar playing and music making. I will always think of my brother with a guitar in his hands creating beautiful sounds and I can't wait for the day when my future kids can hear their Uncle Dan play them a song. 

I ask that you please consider contributing to help my brother live a full and happy life so that he can continue making my life, and the lives of those around Dan, full and happy. We appreciate anything you can give, whether it is money or love and support or prayers and good vibes. Thank you in advance, from the bottom of my heart.
