Everything about Dan's life revolves around taking care of other people. It's just how he was raised.
Growing up in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood, Dan developed his penchant for caring for others from watching his mother. "My mother was an Officer in the Salvation Army and she used to tell us: "You have to put feet to your prayers," so that's what we grew up thinking and doing." As one gets to know Dan, examples of this philosophy are everywhere you look.
