Dan’s Story

Site created on May 10, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.  

Over the past few months Dan has complained of severe headaches.  Dan was encouraged by family and friends to go in and get a MRI.  On 4/27/18 Dan decided he should get the MRI  to rule out anything serious..  Dan was immediately called back to the doctors office that same day and received news that the MRI revealed a large mass on his frontal lobe.   The following Tuesday 5/1/18 Dan received details about the steps he would need to take to fight this.  The first step for this journey will be surgery.  Dan is currently scheduled for surgery on 5/11/18.   Dan and Karla will be traveling to milwaukee on 5/10/18 to meet with a neurosurgeon for a second opinion.   Please keep Dan and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Well at approximately 3:30 Dan was discharged from the hospital.  He can’t wait to be home and in his own bed.  He is able to get around on his own as long as there are no distractions.  He will go back to Northwestern for a follow up visit next week, please pray that all goes well.  A huge thank you to friends and family that have donated to help with his medical expenses.  Words can’t express what it means to their family.   Please continue to uplift Dan and his family in prayer.
