Dan found out on September 25, 2008 that he had a tumor on his pancreas as the result of an MRI scan investigating seemingly less serious abdominal pain… After a two year battle with cancer Dan died on July 22, 2010, but he lives on in heaven (Matt 22:32). As D.L. Moody once remarked, “Someday you will read in the papers that I am dead. Don’t you believe a word of it! At that moment I shall be more alive than I am now.”

This site was originally to provide Dan’s friends timely and accurate information in order to be armed to pray specifically and intensely for his health.

Now the journal entries, videos of Dan, habitat houses, and other captured memories stand as stones of remembrance (Joshua 4) of what we learned on the journey. We hope that they also serve as an encouragement to those fighting their own battles today.
