Dan Rotante, most recently a Technical Manager for Fox Sports, MLB Network, and Versus, died in 2014 following a three-year battle with cancer. More than just a technical manager, although he certainly made his mark working multiple Super Bowls, countless network baseball games, post seasons, and the Olympics, he was a teacher and mentor to many starting their careers in television, He made the time to communicate with new people to make them feel like part of the team. Dan is survived by his wife, Gale, and children Dominick, Sydney, Lesa, Donna, and Jackie.
Join us as we come together to honor Dan by providing comfort to thousands of people diagnosed with cancer.
In his honor, The Strike Out Fear Foundation is working with National Jewish Health in Denver, CO to enhance the comfort and life-affirming qualities of the infusion room where Dan was treated. Based on studies that show the benefits of using visual and audio distractions to decrease fear and ease anxiety, we are donating iPads for patient use during treatment. Further amenities may include a large screen TV, DVD player and discs with beautiful nature images, art, new paint, and furniture. These small changes have the potential to impact the treatment experience for more than 1,000 patients and 6,260 patient visits a year. Join us.
