Buying Time & The Danny Butler Memorial Fund

The Danny Butler Memorial Fund (the “Fund”) is dedicated to funding game changing oncological research throughout the world as the leading doctors close in on a cure. Colorectal cancer is the focus of the Fund. In addition, patients who have demonstrated financial distress as a result of the overwhelming economic impact of personally fighting this disease will be eligible for Fund assistance. 

The Fund was inspired by Danny Butler who was diagnosed with Stage 4 colorectal cancer at age 37. At age 39, he was written off by every top doctor in Los Angeles. Except one, Dr. Heinz-Josef Lenz. Dr. Lenz is a world renowned clinical oncologist involved in leading research in global trials while also treating patients. His brilliance and involvement in cutting edge research bought Dan, and all of us, 5 more years. Hence the name BUYING TIME. In those 5 years Dan became a golfer and golf champion, boater, surfer, fly fisherman, downhill skier and Colorado lover, a successful writer and beloved Uncle to his nieces Margot, Quinn and Emma as well as his only nephew, Liam. He lived a lifetime in the time they said he didn’t have.
