Xavier High School jazz ensembles will hold a concert with guest artist José L. Encarnación to benefit Dan’s House of Hope at 7 p.m. March 14 at the Xavier Fine Arts Theatre. Dan’s House of Hope is dedicated to supporting young adults with cancer. They help with financial burdens and provide a home away from home while receiving treatment at a regional cancer facility located in Houston.
Dan was diagnosed with cancer when he was 17 years old and a student at Xavier High School. Dan would spend nearly the next four years fighting for his life and wished to have a place for young adults to go during their treatments. After Dan’s death, his parents made his dream a reality and Dan’s House of hope was born.
