Dan’s Story

Site created on July 2, 2018

On June 29, 2018, Dan received the diagnosis that he had stage IV pancreatic cancer.  An active member in both the national, Eastern PA local, and collegiate soccer communities through refereeing and playing, we supported Dan as his did everything he could to give his cancer the red card and send it off for good.  Dan fought bravely through every moment, often not letting on how tough the cancer was for him.  Dan passed away on January 22, 2019 in the company of his wife and parents in the comfort of his home.  A lover of the beautiful game, an avid runner of road races like the Broad Street Run, a son, husband, friend, colleague, and family member, Dan touched the lives of so many people.  Please join us in showing our love for Dan as we honor his incredible legacy.

Hello, friends and family!

It has been a challenging four months since Dan left our lives and the support of everyone has meant so much to me as I navigate this new life I've been handed by the universe.  I wanted to share an important and dear to me piece of information about something I am working towards to help continue the fight against this devastating cancer.  I've been accepted by Project Purple to be a part of their fall hike at the Grand Canyon in October. Project Purple is an amazing organization that provides patient financial aid for families battling pancreatic and research support to continue working towards the discovery of better treatment options for patients.  As part of the hiking team, I am fundraising to support Project Purple and I am asking all of you to help me get to my goal.  Share, post, spread the word.  Any little bit helps!  I am dedicating my hike to Dan, to his memory, to the impact he had on all of us.

I hope life is kind to you all right now and please feel free to reach out for any questions, or just to say hi.  :)

All my best,
