Danny and Conor-

I have been reading about Danny for the past few days and sending
thoughts and prayers out to your whole family. We don’t know
eachother, but I saw a tweet last week to check out
dannyisthebomb.com. I did and I can’t stop thinking about you both. I
have posted your site on my twitter and gchat status just to get the
word out to people and let them be aware of what is happening. My
friends reactions are all the same- “wow, scary and so sad”.

I debated if I should write to you, not knowing you guys, but I just
wanted to let you know that there are many many people out there that
are fighting for Danny and his 100% recovery. (whether they know him
or not!)

I live in Boston, after moving here from Colorado 5 years ago. Your
group of friends remind me so much of my crew out west. I couldn’t
even imagine if this were to happen to any of my friends… but the
reality is, we live an exciting, yet dangerous lifestyle, so it is
completely feasible.

Your story and posts have really touched me and more than anything, I
keep telling myself and the people around me to enjoy life at this
very moment because you never know what can happen. So thank you Danny
for reaffirming this and keep fighting! Maybe one day we’ll be on the
same mountain and ride together!

Much love and hope,
michelle deyoung
