Daniel's Put it Together Podcast is a shinning example of his amazing podcast work and advocacy. He should be celebrated with great recognition!  — Barby

I got to interact w/ Daniel- or as Molly Schreiber & I like to shout, "GARZA!" for the 1st time this year at HealtheVoices. Every interaction w/ Daniel was light hearted, good humored & left me flying home thinking about how grateful I am to know someone so joyous despite his pain & many struggles. He deserves a standing ovation just for LIVING!  — Kenzie
