Dani died on July 25th in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, his hometown.

He fought for almost 3 years against one of those "rare diseases" so underrated by the pharmaceutical industry. Ewing's sarcoma is a mostly pediatric cancer, very rare and extremely aggressive.

Dani was living in Switzerland with his wife Nathália when he was diagnosed. He was finishing his PhD in photonics but this had to be postponed. They decided to return to Barcelona to start treatment as soon as possible with their families.

Chemotherapy cycles were not enough to stop Dani to fight against injustices happening around him. His constructive critical spirit always helped to improve many people and institutions.

One of those many victories came when he felt the necessity to protect the bus stop of one of the most important oncological hospitals in Catalonia, which was made without a shelter. The patients had to wait for several minutes outdoors, without protection from the sun during the summer, from the rain in winter and without even being able to sit down to rest after the chemotherapy cycle. Dani contacted the company “Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona” and the local government of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat but nobody took action on the matter.

It was not until Dani made a video to bring attention to this problem and shared it on Facebook that the institutions started to take this issue seriously. In just hours it became viral and passed over half a million views. The Mayor of L’Hospitalet reached out to him and shared a post in FaceBook thanking his fight and confirming the shelter will be a reality very soon.

We would like to honor our Dani. We want a commemorative plaque in his memory located in the same bus stop that so many oncologic patients have needed for so long (Camí Pau Redó - Hospital O. Duran I Reynals - L’Hospitalet de Llobregat).

"This plaque was installed thanks to the fight of Dani Infante."

Let's get these signatures for him to be able to present the proposal to the Mayor!
