My Story

As some of you may know, Dan was at Ryan's bachelor party in Cabo, Mexico and took a bad fall. He has very bad brain trauma and was taken to the hospital in Cabo where he underwent emergency surgery to relieve pressure in his brain. He was evacuated to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego about 24 hours after his fall. He arrived here around 12:30 am the morning of April 16th. We have created this website to keep friends and family in the loop about his condition. Please check the Journal tab for our most recent updates.
