We Love Dan!

Everyone knows my blogs are typically a bit inappropriate and aiming to make you laugh! But laughter is best when shared with those you love. And that's why I'm dedicating today's efforts to a good family friend who has become ill and needs our help so he can continue to share in life's laughs with all of us!  Just a little green love from everyone will make a huge difference.
Danno is requiring a stem cell transplant.  It's a very pricey procedure and would be amazing if we all could transplant a little from our wallet to his.  Hey we've all removed a little green to see a little pink in the strip clubs or spent way too much on a damn fancy latte...increase your karma and spend that on a really good cause instead!

This campaign is raising money for
"Dan's Stem Cell Transplant"  ...  Please click on the link.

Here's the story:

In April 2013, upon returning from his 30th birthday celebration in Mexico, Dan's life began to change drastically. He began to experience numbness in his limbs that began to spread daily. This numbness progressed to muscle atrophy and borderline paralysis in his entire body. By May Dan was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease called CIDP. To this day Dan lives with a small range of motion and needs constant assistance from family and friends in his day to day life. Although many treatments have been attempted, none have been successful in returning him to the quality of life he once enjoyed. Gone are the days of surfing, skateboarding, walking his dogs, or enjoying a stroll with his lovely girlfriend Daniela.

Despite the trying times of the past year , Dan has recently been bestowed with a hopeful opportunity. He visited Northwestern University in Chicago to be considered for a clinical trial for a Stem Cell Transplant. The trial is not only competitive but expensive. Shortly after his visit Dan found he had been accepted! His friends and family refuse to give up hope and need your help to pay for out of pocket costs. Travel to and from Chicago, in home care, and accommodations in addition to that are endless. Any amount of a donation would help and Dan and his family would be forever grateful.

Meet his service dog Zues :)
