Daniel’s Story

Site created on September 29, 2019

Daniel (Dan, Dangy) Hollis lights up the room with his infectious smile and love for life. He is a sophomore at Emerson College where he studies Marketing Communications and is a member of the Mens’ Lacrosse Team.  

Early on Saturday, September 28th Dan and his friends were leaving a party and were confronted by another group of college-aged boys.  Words were exchanged, pushing/shoving started, and in the scuffle, we believe Dan was hit and subsequently hit his head on cement/bricks as he fell.  He was brought to a local Boston hospital and was diagnosed with a blood clot on his brain requiring immediate surgery.

The initial surgery was successful, however, with all brain injuries the first 72 hours are critical.  Dan was placed in a medically induced coma to aid in his recovery. He has suffered some damage to his brain, yet the doctors are unable to pinpoint how much and how severe the damage remains.  We will use this website to update the many friends and family members of Dan’s progress. We are incredibly grateful and humbled by the outpouring of love and ask only for you to send your prayers, healing thoughts, and love to Dan as he fights this incredibly difficult battle.

I want people to have the best time ever.
Especially if they’re around me.”
