Family and friends of Dan Long are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.
Dan (aka, Danny) and for some Coach has serious medical issues. In early 2013 after tons of tests he was diagnosed with Hemochromatosis HFE (iron overload). Basically, his major organs were saturated with iron and not able to function well. His liver, spleen and Gallbladder all have be hit hard. In addition, he was completely unaware of his condition, it is difficult to identify. As a result the medicine, alcohol and even fatty foods further damaged these already tasked organs over the past 20+ years..
