"Dash" publicly documented his battle with Langerhans cell histiocytosis (a rare form of cancer) throughout the year by poignantly discussing his realities and mixing in his perfect brand of humor. For example, in October he tweeted, "So, I have bone cancer pain AND no heat? How lucky can one guy be?" He followed that up with, "The heat was restored. Or in Glenn Frey terms, the heat is on."
That's why we love him.
