Speaking about this difficult time, his wife Natalie said: “His family was his life and he felt like he couldn’t provide for us anymore.”

To say thank you for all of the hard work he’s done, his family and friends wanted to surprise him and give something back. So we teamed up with our pals at Morrison’s to give Danny a surprise party.
Danny thought he was going to speak at a local event, but we had something a little different in mind…
