Dan’s Story

Dan Springer touched many lives as an educator at the University of Missouri and as an artist in the Columbia art scene. In 2009, doctors diagnosed Dan with stage four esophageal cancer. He was given very little hope that he would make it more than a year, but two and a half years later he far exceeded anyone’s expectations.

He sought every treatment available, but Dan lost his battle with cancer on September 28, 2011. If you’d like to learn more about Dan’s journey, you can read the entries on this website.

Because Dan touched the lives of so many theater students, his family would like to establish a Technical Theater Scholarship Fund. If you would to contribute to this fund, please click on the following PayPal link:

Donations to the fund can also be mailed to Melissa Alpers-Springer, 1645 North Golf Blvd, Columbia, MO 65202.

Thank you for your generosity,
Family and friends of Dan Springer
