Dan Lighten, our favorite neighbor, brother, father, husband, and friend, and the ultimate diehard trash-talking BYU fan, just found out that he has Stage 4 Colon Cancer.
Sadly, doctors here in the United States haven't given Dan and his family much hope in the conventional treatments offered here. So, after countless hours of research, phone calls, and prayer, Dan has decided to seek out treatment with a well respected treatment clinic in Mexico. Between using a mix of both traditional and alternative therapies, Dan and his family feel that this is their best option for his treatment plan.
Unfortunately, the costs for this clinic are not covered by insurance. As Dan's friends and family, we want to show our support and love to Dan and his family! Please help us buoy up the Lighten family at this trying time, and to help alleviate some of the financial burden they are facing, so that Dan can concentrate on working towards a long and healthy future!
