After battling Stage IV melanoma in 2000 Dan has been declared cancer-free for the past eighteen years. Unfortunately, our old enemy has returned. Thank you for reading this story and the many subsequent updates to follow. This site is to keep our community informed and engaged in Dan's life, not to hold texts, phone calls, emails and visits at bay. In fact, this site should do the opposite and bring you closer to this clearly difficult time in Dan's life and help you understand what is happening in real time as we can. You are clearly a part of Dan's healing network and support. Our family thanks and appreciates you.
