Dan left us
Sunday, December 16, 2007 at 6:00 a.m. He fought a brave
battle with cancer and died peacefully at home in Maine with
his wife Jean at his side. His strength, dignity, and grace
in the face of the daunting challenges of this disease were
an inspiration to all who knew him.
so grateful to all of you who wrote to Dan through The
Living Legacy website with your stories of how his music
touched your lives; with your uplifting words of
encouragement; with your declarations of admiration and
Dan was a strong and private man, but even the mountain must
tremble, and during the toughest times he gained solace and
comfort from reading your letters and learning that his
music had been a source of light in your lives. Greatest of
all though, was the feeling you gave him that his time here
had served a purpose.
I hope you will find some peace in knowing that the joy and
comfort you found in his music winged it's way back to him
through your words, prayers, and good wishes.

Love is the only thing that matters" ~ DF
A Valentine Song
In February of 2005, Dan went to Colorado for a few
weeks to supervise some ranch business and to do some
work in the studio. I stayed in Maine to oversee the
final construction phase of our Maine house. It was
hard for us to be so far apart for so long, especially
since we would miss Valentine's Day together.
On the afternoon of the 14th, the florist brought me a
dozen long-stemmed red roses; FedEx brought me a CD
with a song Dan had written for me just for
Valentine's Day. The song is called "Sometimes A
Song", and it will be available for digital download
at iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and WalMart.com the week
of Valentine's Day.
100% of proceeds from all digital sales will be
donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Thanks for all of your support, encouragement, and
Happy Valentine's Day,
This is one of eleven previously unrecorded
songs (nine originals) that will be
released later this year on a CD Dan titled "Love In

From Jean Fogelberg:
Dan and I battled Advanced Prostate Cancer for three and a half years. Those
were difficult days, but during that time we were bolstered by the knowledge
that research was being done, and the hope that a cure would be found "any
day now". That cure didn't come in time for Dan, but there are thousands of
men out there right now hoping and praying a cure will come in time for them.
The Prostate Cancer Foundation funds research at over 150 organizations all over
the world. They have funded over 1,400 projects aimed not just at early
detection and a cure, but also at finding treatments that will put less stress
on a man's body and allow him to live a more active, pain-free life while
fighting prostate cancer. Two of the research projects they are funding right
now are being conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital, where Dan was

"Love In Time" Release Date Set For August 13, 2009
In 2003, while compiling material for a CD of live recordings, Dan came across some rough demos he had recorded earlier in his career. He felt inspired to finish them and worked on the songs until May of 2004 when he was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. We decided we would get treatment in Boston, as we were in the process of building a home in Maine and felt that it would be healthier to be there where Dan could sail and ski, and the new house would be an engrossing, therapeutic project to work on. Dan began receiving the standard course of treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital and we became immersed in all the minute decisions of home building, with trips to Boston every other month for tests and shots.
In January and February of 2005 Dan returned to Colorado to resume working in the studio while I stayed in Maine to oversee the final construction phase. While there he recorded three new songs, one of which was "Sometimes A Song", a valentine for me that would later be released as a download on Valentine's Day 2008 to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation. In April of 2006 we returned to Colorado together. The ranch was for sale and and we needed to start sorting and organizing things. It was the most beautiful time of the year, warm and lush and everything in bloom. Dan completed, sequenced, and wrote the liner notes for the CD he titled ï¿½Love in Timeï¿½. He put it in our safe deposit box in Maine and asked me to release it after he was gone.
We never gave up hope that we would somehow beat this disease: we knew every cancer is different and every person is different, but we also knew the odds were against us. Dan was the strongest, bravest person I've ever known and I believed (as did our friends and family) that if anyone would be able to conquer this cancer, it would be him. He fought for every day with incredible determination and grace, and lived every minute to the fullest, sailing right up until two months before he died.
Dan left us on December 16, 2007 but his music continues - a living legacy to one of the most versatile and talented musicians, singers, and songwriters of his generation.

Christmas came early for me as I just finished listening to Dan Fogelberg: A Retrospective Interview! I purchased this cd, not for the music (as I have it all, of course!) but for the rare chance to hear this private man speak about the inspiration and thoughts behind his incredible works. Much to my happiness, the interviewer, Fred Migliore, did an outstanding job of engaging Dan with insightful, well thought out questions. To hear Dan laugh, reminisce and enlighten us with each track was a treat I shall treasure! Cheers to FM
Odyssey for making this available for all to hear! - C.H.
What an exciting finished piece of artwork. Fabulous, warm, heart wrenching, memorable and on and on. Thank you very much for taking the time to pull this project together. - David and Ellyn, TN
I received the cd set and I am telling everyone about it because I am enjoying the interview with Dan Fogelberg and I am truly fascinated with the stories behind the songs. Thank you so much for sending it to me. I am so glad I decided to buy this for myself as a Christmas gift because I will treasure it for the rest of my life. - Michele M.
Just finished listening to my Christmas present - Dan's interview CD with Fred. What an awesome gift to have for years to come. This candid interview revealed answers to questions that had been going around in my head, such as what or whom is the song Tucson, Arizona (Gazette) about. I'll be truthful - I did not want this interview or CD to end, as it felt like Dan was being interviewed today and that we would be hearing from him again in the future. - Aaron B., Montana

Hey my fellow
DanFan Brothers... ...have you been tested this year? When Dan
passed away I made a resolution to get tested every year and made an
appointment with my doc. The DRE (Digital Rectal Exam) is never fun
but it only lasts a few seconds. Dr. Poirier said my prostate felt
normal. Next I went for lab work - the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen)
test. Normal levels are below 4.0 and my level of PSA was 0.4 - Those
are the results from 2008.
2009 Good to go. 2010 came and I
made my appointment again. The DRE for 2010 - normal. PSA was 0.19
your husband, boyfriend, brothers, fathers and any other males you

Ph.D., has spent much of the last decade testing his self-discipline
with the greatest puzzle of all, the human genome. He is searching
for the genes involved in hereditary prostate cancer (see "What
is HPC?" ); his initial tests took him through the body's
23 pairs of chromosomes at the astonishing rate of about 10 million
base pairs (genetic building blocks) at a time, and gleaned a
handful of promising sites that deserved further study.
After those giant
strides, however, the next part has had Isaacs creeping at what
seems a snail's pace--if his previous tests were the equivalent of
flying over an area, now he's conducting a house-to-house search,
examining hundreds of genes, one at a time. He is working mostly in
the dark: He doesn't know how many genes he's looking for, and --
although he and colleagues have narrowed it down considerably -- he
still isn't sure exactly where to find them. Worse, nobody has ever
looked at these genes before. So before he can even determine
whether or not a gene looks promising, he must first figure out what
it is. Think of an explorer sailing in uncharted waters, facing a
string of islands, investigating each one and producing a
topographical map. "Each one of these genes," he explains,
"could be a Ph.D. dissertation in itself, just to identify and
characterize the gene, get the structure and sequence it," not
to mention comparing all of this new information in the DNA of
hundreds of men with HPC and their families.
And yet, slowly
but surely, this hard work is paying off: So far, Isaacs and
colleagues at Hopkins and the National Human Genome Research
Institute have found good evidence that at least two of these
defective genes do indeed exist: One is somewhere on Chromosome 1,
and the other, most recently discovered, ties on the X chromosome --
a milestone in cancer research, this is the first time the X
chromosome (which sons inherit from their mothers) has been
definitively linked to a major cancer. Isaacs would love to start
figuring out the role those aberrant genes play in the cascade of
events leading to prostate cancer. Instead, he is steeling himself
to keep turning over those pieces -- in this case, the pieces are
thousands of undiscovered genes--until he can see the puzzle in its
entirety. Although they haven't yet pinpointed the faulty genes on
either chromosome, Isaacs and colleagues have identified certain
characteristics that suggest which mutation a family may have: In
families with a mutated HPC1 gene.

other. Shortly after Vicki lost her battle with cancer, Cyd was diagnosed with
this same dreadful disease. Both of them fought a valiant fight, with dignity
and grace, to their very last mortal breath... But God is eternal, Life is
