Danny’s Dream Recap
Dan DiNatale died in October 2016 at the age of 25, four-and-a-half years after his diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma. To honor his memory and aid in cancer research, Chuck and Sue DiNatale started the Danny Fund at the University of Florida Health Cancer Center where their son was treated.
To help that fund, the couple organized the first ever Danny’s Dream event on March 24. Hosted by the DiNatales in partnership with UFHCC Development staff, the event was attended by more than 200 people and raised more than $90,000 to fund research on Ewing’s Sarcoma — under the direction of Dr. Joanne Lagmay.
Drs. Licht, Gibbs, and Lagmay all spoke at the event.
