At age 49, Daryl Schlosser is a loving husband, carrying father of four, son, brother and loyal
friend. He married his high school sweet-heart 28 years ago and since has always made the
wellbeing of his family his top priority. Together, Daryl and his wife, Tami, have two daughters
and two sons. Danielle is the oldest and is working in the medical field. Kyle is a full time
student attending Arizona State University on a full scholarship. Kaylee is in Junior High and
training hard to make the varsity cheer team next year. The youngest, Dylan is in elementary
school and loves to play flag football (on a team that Daryl also coaches). Together, the family
enjoys going on hikes, bike rides, and swimming.
Daryl has made an effort to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. He went on weekly mountain
bike rides through the desert, and committed at least three days a week to the gym. He always
watches his diet and doesn’t smoke or drink. With all this in mind, it came as quite a shock to us
all when he suddenly needed to be rushed to the E.R.
On Friday, May 25th, 2012 Daryl was diagnosed with Stage IV colon and liver cancer. He was
out on one of his weekly desert bike rides when suddenly he knew something was very wrong.
After many tests and multiple doctors, our worst fears became reality. Since that day, Daryl has
been on a strictly liquid diet and has lost over 25 pounds. His surgery and chemotherapy are
scheduled for the near future.
To spend more time with his kids, Daryl made the decision to become self employed nine years
ago. While he does get the desired time with his kids, if he stops working, he stops getting paid.
This is where we need your help; the combination of lost income and mounting medical bills has
left the family needing financial help. Any amount that you are able to contribute will be greatly
