Our hearts go out to Dan, his wife Catrina, and their daughters Evie and Ellie during this time of enormous trial. We pray daily for Dan to recover his health and return even stronger to his family and career.
In order to support the Sanchez family during this time, we, his friends, are pooling our resources to provide some comfort for necessities such as food, transportation, medicine, and day care.
Dan is a fan of superheroes, Superman specifically.
"There's always a way. When the odds are impossible -- do the impossible." -Action Comics Vol 2. Issue #14
We are channeling Superman throughout this campaign to support Dan's recovery and his family's comfort.
Thank you for giving what you can to support the Sanchez family.
Update #3 September 27, 2023
Thanks to everyone who has contributed treasure and prayer. We are edging closer to our total fundraising goal of $25,000 thanks to your incredible support.
I just spoke with Dan who is in good spirits and with family while getting treatment in the Boston area.
He tells me:
"My first appointment with an oncologist at Winship Cancer Institute at Emory is Oct 19 [updated to October 5th]. I’ve been taking the anti-cancer drug I mention in [the first post linked below] for about ten days now, and so far no serious side effects. And it’s been two weeks since I last had one of those pulsing visual disruption episodes. On the negative side, after a spine MRI the doctors here have concluded that the issue in one of my vertebrae that was spotted right after my seizure is also cancer. They’re going to keep track of it and see if the anti-cancer drug has an effect on it."
My humble thanks to everyone who, in response to the news of my cancer diagnosis, has prayed for me, reached out with words of support, and generously donated to the crowdfunding campaign that my friend and colleague Richard Lorenc set up for me and my family. I am also grateful to everyone who shared the campaign and my Substack post about the diagnosis. I have been overwhelmed and encouraged by the outpouring of love, kindness and generosity. From the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of my wife Catrina and daughters Evie and Ellie, thank you so much.
Thank you, all, for the immense outpouring of support!
