Help Daniel and Denise

Our family was devastated on Valentine's Day this year to learn that Daniel has metastatic colon cancer.  Daniel is unable to work due to his illness and the effects of the chemotherapy.  Please help us to be able to survive as we fight alongside Daniel.  It's truly the fight of a lifetime.

So many hopes and dreams we had for our family have been pushed aside.  But we hope that, if we can get some help, we might be able to plan a special trip so Daniel could enjoy a vacation with his family.  We haven't been anywhere as a foursome.

Thank you so much to everyone who has already helped.  You are angels lifting us up when we cannot rise on our own.

Hello everyone. Thank you for your continued support and love. Daniel has had some serious bouts with bowel obstructions in the past month, as many of you know. He's had two hospital stays in the past month.
He's currently home and stable-ish. We are praying so hard that the chemo works to get him tumors back down so the obstructions stop being such a threat.

If he can be stable in the early fall, we plan to do Daniel's dream trip to see the Sequoias. We would love your support to make that happen. Any donations will go into our fund we've set up already to get us there.

We hope to go to see the Sequoias, take the kids to Disneyland, and to the beach in Cali. A trip full of memories for the kids to cherish always.

Hi Friends. We just had the twelfth treatment of Daniel's first series of chemo. Now we see where the disease is at and potentially see about surgery.
We will be getting disability now, but it is not nearly enough to live on here in Seattle and they also took away our food assistance.
Please help as you can. We are so appreciative of all of you.

Hi friends!
Tomorrow the kids and I, along with Auntie Yolanda Morris and the pugs, are participating in the "Return to Glory; Lard Butt 1K," a silly event to have a little fun together (our very first official "marathon").
We are walking in honor of Daniel who doesn't have the strength to join us but he DOES have the will to fight for his life. Every day Daniel takes a step in his battle, can you sponsor our steps on his behalf?
Our goal is $620, in honor of the .62 miles we'll be walking!
From all of us--THANK YOU!

CT scan last week showed that the chemo is working as expected and the tumors in Daniel's abdomen are shrinking, so hurray!
But, we are facing some big scary choices about medical costs which come down to life saving choices versus finances. So, we continue to ask for any help you can give.
With love, gratitude, and blessings from all of us--Denise, Daniel, Grace, and Oliver
