Danny is a humble and kind young man who, like most teenage boys, loves sports and fishing. Danny is a strong athlete and excels at baseball as a pitcher. At the age of 13, during winter practice, Danny complained of an ache above his knee. When the “injury” did not get better, he went for an x-ray which showed an irregularity in his femur. Two days later, Danny was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, otherwise known as bone cancer. After surgery and 21 rounds of chemotherapy at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, Danny walks cancer free. His latest scans were clear so his family celebrated!

Danny’s parents could not be more proud of the way he has handled this curveball. He has always been a wonderful brother to his 3 sisters and now is a great role model to all of his peers as well. Danny has inspired so many with his positive attitude. His peers said, “He is the strongest kid we know”.
