The friends and family of Daniel are joining together to help him in his battle against cancer. Please show your support!

On May 8, 2012 my little brother Daniel Proulx-Cook was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia. While most high school seniors spend the early summer getting ready for prom, graduation and going off to college, Daniel has had to focus his thoughts and energies on chemotherapy and blood transfusions. In all likelihood, because of his weakened immune system, Dan won't even be able to attend his graduation. And his plans for starting college in the fall at the Pennsylvania College of Technology have been put on hold.

In addition to the terrible stress, sadness, and worry that this disease brings, it has already become evident that the financial impact of fighting cancer will be significant. Along with the many expenses not covered by health insurance, my mother (Deb, a single parent) will have to take unpaid family medical leave to care for my brother and use any savings previously reserved for Daniel's college education to pay for leukemia treatments.

I have created this webpage as a way to help my family fight Daniel's cancer by helping to reduce the financial strain created by it.
