Dan Keenan "Paying it Forward" . . . . .
Dan dreams of bringing mobility to other ALS patients on the Western Slope of Colorado.
If you know Dan, you know laughter and great attitude. Dan's selfless nature is what is most memorable about him. Even with the challenges of having terminal A.L.S (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Dan has a consistent upbeat, positive attitude and a dream of helping others in Western Colorado stricken with this terminal disease.
Dan's dream is to "Pay it Forward", to others in need. Never thinking of himself first, but rather thinking of others who could benefit from a wheelchair van to assist in their daily lives. Dan and his team are working hard to raise money and make his dream come true.
Dan's legacy will live on in our community for decades to come.

The Keenan Family wants to say "Thank You" to all the generous donors, who made this dream of "Paying it Forward" come true!
Dan Keenan, the originator of this dream has to be very proud of what has been accomplished to help other A.L.S. patients who suffer from this debilitating disease. This wheelchair accessible van will make the life's of many A.L.S. patients and their families just a little bit easier to manage during their care.
Even though the van is now completely paid off, there will always be maintenance and licensing fees to pay. A 501c3 non-profit status is being applied for to make future donations tax deductible. Please consider making a donation to the Keenan Van Mobility Fund to maintain the van for future families.
The KEENAN VAN has been paid in full!
Thanks to all the generous donors!
