He's been doing all he can to help his eleven-year-old son Dylan battle cancer and was recently diagnosed with a cancer of his own. 

The nurse even cried when she told Dan Popescu, 45 of St. Clair, that he too had a mass on his brain, according to FOX 2 Detroit. Dan is a father of four who works as a carpenter and has been by his son's side throughout his battles with the rare form of brain cancer. Family friend Danielle Williams, says she thinks that the environmental issues in the area from pollution are to blame for the cancers. A GoFundMe account has been set up for the family.
