All profit from The 4th Ever 2 Johns Golf Tournament Benefit will go to Daniel Fernandez, a Volusia County resident diagnosed with Testicular cancer. About Daniel: As a young healthy 22 year old, the last thing you’d think to worry about is developing such a disease as cancer. Even when all of the health nuts tell you, “don’t do [insert horrible action here], it causes cancer”, you never think for a second that it could actually happen to you. This instance happened to Daniel Fernandez - a student, a Chiropractic Assistant, a brother, an uncle, a son, and a soon to be father to a 2 month old puppy he adopted from the shelter. It’s a Monday night, and Daniel is anxiously waiting for the next morning when he is able to pick up his new puppy from the humane society. His wish is finally coming true after about 6 months of searching for the perfect pup for himself and his family. This daydreaming is halted as a sharp pain intrudes the side of his rib cage making it hard for him to breathe. At first he tries to shake it off as a pulled muscle he might have induced from an intense dance off with his 6-year-old niece the other day. However, after a couple of hours the pain increases while his ability to breathe decreases - soon enough he finds himself concerned enough to be on his way to the hospital to make sure everything is okay. A couple of hours and x-rays later, doctors confirm that they have found nodules in his lungs but have never seen anything like it before. The CAT Scan results confirm the worst…Testicular cancer that has spread to the lungs; surgery will be imperative, as well as chemotherapy treatments. While waiting for his surgery to be scheduled, Daniel’s mother Flor, is on her way to visit her son in the hospital when she slips on the curb while walking to the bus stop. Her elbow has been fractured and now requires surgery of her own. The doctor’s at Halifax Hospital try to schedule both Daniel and his mother’s surgeries the same day, but Flor refuses in order to stay by her son’s side during his operation. Just when it seems the family can’t catch a break, the operation confirms the cancer as malignant- stage four. . . . Please be involved in this event - more details about Daniel can be found here:
