Daniel is 17 and batteling nasopharyngeal carcinoma, which is very rare in the US. He was diagnosed in October of last year. He has gone through 4 rounds of chemo, and is now going through radiation. Daniel being 17 has no way to communicate with his friends and other family members during his long days and nights spent at the hospital. And being in a children's hospital at 17 is difficult trying to find something for him to do. He can only colorso many Spiderman pictures.
