Dan Gilbert’s recovery after stroke ‘will take time’: ‘He will meet this challenge head on’
An update was provided Wednesday on the health of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert.
Last month, a family friend took the 57-year-old Detroit businessman to the hospital. While there, he had a stroke and underwent a catheter-based procedure, according to an earlier statement from Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner.
Farner on Wednesday provided the following:
“Dan Gilbert and his family are beyond grateful for the thoughts and well wishes from so many people as they focus on Dan’s recovery.
Dan’s family is happy to share that he maintains his strong sense of humor and focus on constant improvement. In fact, a few days ago, Dan requested his favorite beverage. When the hospital staff informed him they were not able to provide it, in the humorous tone Dan is known for, he insisted that a review of the hospital’s beverage best-practices be completed.
To be clear, Dan’s recovery is a process that will take time – but we are all confident that he will meet this challenge head on as he always does.”
Gilbert has owned the Cavs since 2005.
