Dan Sullivan

Dan Sullivan has always been an active guy, but daily activities became more difficult when he turned 50. He thought it was just a part of getting older. But cancer? He wasn’t expecting that.

One night, as he sat down for dinner with his family, Dan had a seizure. He was rushed to the hospital and further tests revealed a mass on his brain.

Dan’s family doctor recommended that he be seen at Fox Chase Cancer Center. From the moment he walked through the doors at Fox Chase, he felt an overwhelming amount of support and realized that everyone he met knew what they were doing.

As it turns out, Dan had lung cancer that had metastasized (spread) to his brain. Radiation treatments kept the cancer from destroying his quality of life, but it was the immunotherapy treatment options he was given that have halted his cancer’s progress.

Once concerned about how much time he had left, Dan has gotten to watch his sons and his daughter grow up. He has experienced things he never thought he would get to see, and that’s because of his Fox Chase team. Not only did they treat him, but they also helped pioneer the immunotherapy that saved his life.
