  • Teen Cancer America (TCA), a non-profit focused on helping teens and young adults with cancer, recently announced a special music program called “Play It Back Songs” that was seven years in the making. Danny’s parents, Frank Riley and Margaret Baker, got involved back in 2012 by giving a donation and by sharing Danny’s journey - particularly how music helped him along the way. In May of 2019, the TCA program officially launched with a concert featuring young cancer survivors performing their original music.
