Your twenties are supposed to be one of the most carefree times in your life. For Daniel, a retired Air Force veteran, his twenties have been a mixture of sadness, pain, hardship and love. At just 21 years of age, Daniel was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Ewing Sarcoma cancer. He was stationed in Arizona at the time and developed an unsettling pain in his knee. Following a round of tests, Daniel received the news that no young person ever wants to hear. Soon after, he was honorably discharged from the Air Force and moved home to Columbus to begin treatments.
Shortly after moving home, Daniel met the love of his life while he was out with friends. He and Morgan felt an instant connection to one another and began dating soon after. Morgan was living in Cleveland at the time and Daniel drove to see her every weekend, despite his often-exhausting chemotherapy schedule. The couple got engaged on March 15th, 2017 on the 9th green of a local golf course. They had recently taken up the sport together and Daniel surprised her with a “will you marry me?” golf ball.
Throughout the last five years, Morgan and Daniel’s love has withstood a lot of adversity. In spite of Daniel’s surgeries and numerous treatment programs, the couple remains optimistic and active. Morgan has faithfully supported Daniel’s pursuit of a college degree and they are both looking forward to his graduation from The Ohio State University on May 6, 2018. When he’s not studying for finals or recovering from chemotherapy, Daniel and Morgan love to spend time outside and enjoying traveling, boating and snowboarding. Regardless of what the future may bring, they are committed to enjoying every moment together.
On May 9th, 2018, Daniel and Morgan will gather in front of family and friends to proclaim their love to one another. We are thrilled to make this day possible for them and are incredibly grateful for the amazing wish granters who have signed up to help us.
