Dan lost his eye and was facially disfigured after what he thought was a watery eye.
Dan had contracted ethmoid sinus cancer and upon finding out his diagnosis, he returned home to tell his wife on the same day she had discovered she was pregnant.
Radiotherapy meant that Dan's skin was too damaged for a prosthesis and has since had numerous surgeries to try and accommodate his lack of an eye.
Dan now tells his story and does what he can to help people in similar circumstances.
