Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund – Preliminary Site Review

Danny Hanning of The Other Shoe - May 6th, 2014

Danny Hanning of The Other Shoe – May 6th, 2014


Dear Family, Friends, Followers of @ The Other Shoe and Facebook,


I know that this might be ‘bad timing’ seeing as most of us are still reeling from the upsetting news of our loss of Robin Williams. However, time is a luxury that I can no longer afford. Afford… That is a great segway for the crux of this message. It is because of my lack of financial prowess that I am starting an Indiegogo Campaign. A campaign to help me raise the funds I will need to fight a winning battle against my cancer.


For those of you that have not been on Facebook much, in the past week? ON Thursday of last week I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The grade of the tumor that they removed on August 1st, 2014 was Grade 3B. This is the highest grade of the scale used to measure and evaluate lymphatic tumors. A grade of 3B means that the cancer cells are the most developed, the number of reaming lymph cells is negligible, and that the cancer cells are so large they can be clearly seen on ‘low magnification’ of a microscope.


Tumor cells of the Grade 3B classification usually correspond to a Stage 3 or Stage 4 state of cancer. It will, likely, be a week or more before my Oncologist has all the; biopsy results, test results, scan results and evaluated me sufficiently to go on record as to the Stage of my cancer. Again, time is a luxury that I (in this case) cannot really afford. I am using my decade of experience working in Pediatric Hematology and Oncology & Adult Hematology and Oncology wards at Long Beach Memorial Hospital and the (now closed) Brea (California) location of Cancer Treatment Centers of America to make a preliminary determination for the purposes of this message and the launch of this campaign.


Considering the subjective factors; my current level of pain-the location(s) of my pain-my frequency of and degree of fevers and my overall health combined with the objective information contained in; Current C.T. Scan with Contrast and the Pathology Report of Biopsy of removed (ex) lymph node. I am reasonably confident that I can give all of you, My Dear Readers, (hopefully) future contributors, family, friends and followers of The Other Shoe(s) and Facebook the estimation that I am currently have a late Stage 3 to early Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. As well, due to the frequency and intensity of my symptoms it is my humble, yet informed, opinion that my cancer is in a crisis state. Meaning that the cancer is highly active and quite possibly spreading at a high rate.


I base this on the number and location of lymphatic nodes that are swollen and painful at this time. The biggest difference between a Stage 3 cancer and a Stage 4 cancer is that the later stage means that organs/nodes in both the upper and lower hemispheres of my body are affected. That is the case… even as I write this message to all of you. I will not go into details, at this time, I do not want to become morbid or ghoulish. Suffice to say that I am currently experiencing a pain similar to someone grinding broken glass Christmas ornaments in nodes both above and below my waist. That would indicate a bi-hemisphere spread of the lymphatic cancer.


My Dear Readers, just as soon as I have a report or a conversation with my oncologist and can verify this information I will post it to; both blogs, Facebook, and the campaign page. It is not my intention to engage in hyperbole. Nor is it in my desire or intent to mislead or misinform anyone at any point during the campaign or the life of this cancer. When this cancer takes me away from all of you, all I will genuinely leave behind are; my written works and My WORD! My word… my honor are of the utmost importance to me. I would rather endure the worst that this cancer has to throw at me, and expire in the shortest length of time than deceive or mislead a single person. My word is my bond, without which I am nothing.


Now, for the real reason for this message here today. I have just finished the preliminary design and format for the Indiegogo Campaign – Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund. I would very much like it if all of you (at your leisure) would take a few moments and look at the campaign, watch the video(s) [I am not sure just how many are inked to the campaign at this time, one more reason for this ‘test’] and read some of what I have written. Then, I would appreciate you sending me a message either via Facebook or email and giving me your opinion and/or suggestions and pointers.


My Dear Readers, this is the Single Most Important Campaign of my lifetime. I have but one opportunity to get this right. Any and all comments & suggestions will be taken into consideration. Further, I have several ‘Openings’ in the campaign for any/all that might want to do more than just contribute. If you would like to; help update content and information, lend a hand creating and tracking ‘Perks’, help handle the monies-distribution and notification, lend a hand with ‘Thank You’ correspondence, help to upload and integrate pictures and/or videos into the campaign, and help to coordinate the campaign with Facebook and my Blog(s) [Social Media Oversight and Execution]? I know that I will need assistance in these areas of expertise.


This is a not-for-profit enterprise so any/all work will be pro-bono as I will not have funds to pay for your time and/or efforts. However, if you are of limited financial means (like myself) then if you have a strong desire to help… this would certainly be an integral way to contribute to my campaign and my fight against this heinous and incestuous cancer.


Regardless of the stage of my cancer, I am going to wage war on this unwelcome and uninvited guest of my body. The only reason I would not fight this cancer… is if it is of a stage that even the oncologist sees that treatment would not be beneficial. I REFUSE to consider that as a possibility. Hence this campaign, my writing and my (already) cranking up my blog(s) and Facebook contacts. I am warning you that I am going to contact all friends, family and past friends and acquaintances. NOBODY will escape my requests for help, support and assistance. PERIOD!


Below is the link to take you to the non-active site for Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund campaign at Indiegogo. PLEASE take your time and look around. Then, PLEASE get back to me with your; thoughts, ideas, criticism, input, observations and brilliant ideas. I will read all and take all into consideration. Thank you! Thank you for your time, your efforts, your kindness, your support, and your love.
