Please help Danny Becker, beloved speedway racer, father, son and husband, in his fight against esophageal cancer. Please help! Thank you!

Danny Becker may be known as a speedway daredevil, and rightfully so!, earning the nickname Berzerko Becker. He is also a beloved father, brother, son and spouse. On february 1st, Danny was diagnosed with stage III esophageal cancer, a serious and life threatening condition caused by a lifetime of acid reflux. Danny's family is determined to get him the best care to fight the good fight, and restore his health . He has finished his chemotherapy and radiation treatments at The City of Hope Cancer Center in Duarte, CA. An amazing, and aptly named place! Thank you City of Hope! His spirits are up due to everybody's kindness and support. Danny still has a long road ahead of him. He has just undergone a major and radical 10 hour long esophagogastrectomy surgery. He is in the hospital for the week, then will be discharged to begin to heal at home. It'll be 4-6 months before he is back up and around. We have just been told his recovery will require additional care and treatments we had not anticipated. We are humbly asking Danny's fans, friends and loved ones if they are able to help Danny in his fight, to kindly make a donation in any amount. Any amount is greatly appreciated. The funds will be applied to his life saving treatments and medications. Your donations will also help with the large out of pocket expenses he is incurring. We know that Danny is strong, and brave, this is a man with 2000 motorcyle crashes in his career! , with his wonderfully positive attitude, and your help, we believe that he can and will beat this. Also, if you are able to give of your time, or can help in any non- monetary way, we would also be eternally grateful. Danny will need all the love and support that we can give. With all our gratitude, Selina Becker Meisterman and Michaela Becker, Danny's daughters, Seth Meisterman, son in law,  Ron Stewart, honorary father, Jojo Guerin, spouse,  Laura Malo, Selina's mother, and dear friend of Danny.

P.S. Thank you everyone who has given of themselves in whatever way. Thank you to all of the donors, you've been generous beyond belief. Thank you Bruce Penhall and family for the amazingly generous gift of the 1981 championship bike cover. Thank you to Danny's wonderful sisters and brother in law for support and rides to treatment, AHOC, and IMS, Sammy Tanner, Mike Donaldson and the Moran Family, Pete Rovazzini, and many many more. You know who you are and we thank you! xoxoxo
