Despite the endless hours of treatments and appointments, Dan, Susan and their kids were able to take a break from cancer in 2011 and travel to Orlando, Florida for a much needed FPS respite. The trip provided the family with memories that will last a lifetime.  They consider these memories priceless, especially after Dan passed away in 2012. Dan was a big supporter of FPS and its mission so Susan and the kids continue to honor Dan through their involvement and support of FPS.  Their communities in Rosemont/Wayne hold an annual yoga and 5K event in Dan’s honor – Dan’s Down Dog and Dash. Part of the proceeds from this event are donated to FPS so that other families facing cancer can create priceless memories like the Schultz family.

Susan was so inspired by the nurses who cared for Dan, especially the one who encouraged Dan to apply for the FPS respite that she went back to school after Dan passed away and graduated with a nursing degree from Villanova University in 2015. Susan is fulfilling her dream of being a patient advocate and providing patient centered care.  She currently works at Lankenau Medical Center and joined the Board in 2018.  Susan and her four children reside in Rosemont, PA.
