The Story

Friends near and far, we can come together to meet the needs of Danielle and her family as we wage a war standing beside her as an army.

Danielle was recently diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer.  She is currently in the midst of working with a team of medical professionals to plan her treatment.  Although it is a new diagnosis, her medical bills are already piling up.  The co-pay for the biopsy was over $1500.  

She needs our help.  We want her to focus her energy on her treatment and her healing, *not* her finances.  Please give whatever you're able to help our Danielle through this challenging time.

Danielle has had two rounds of chemo. The first round was extremely rough - she became severely dehydrated due to the vomiting and was hospitalized to treat the dehydration and side effects from the chemo. It took her about two weeks just to recover from that first treatment.

Her second round has gone better. They adjusted the cocktail and she seemed to tolerate it better than the initial mix. That being said, hydration and nutrition are an ongoing struggle due to lack of appetite.

Thanks to donations of frequent flyer miles, her kids have been able to visit her.

Danielle's monthly bills are astronomical. In addition to her monthly insurance payment, her co-pays are through the roof. She is currently not working and the income from her job stops in a few days.

Every donation has helped Danielle, no matter how small. If you are willing/able, please consider helping out D and her family by donating to her fundraiser. If you have frequent flyer miles that you are willing to donate, that would also be extremely helpful , as we are currently tapped out.

Thanks for the love you are sending to Danielle. She feels it.

Hello everyone!  Here is the latest update from Danielle's caring bridge page, updated by her parents (https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/daniellegladd).

"A quick update: Danielle was discharged to home care yesterday afternoon after 5 days in the hospital. She's resting comfortably at the moment, hanging in the family room with her brother Matthew, who is here from Baltimore for a while. We really appreciate everyone's concern (and the generous donations in support of her from so many).
She's had a tough week. 
We have to compliment all of the staff at the Kaiser hospital here in Antioch for their excellent, compassionate care.
Again, thank you all."

Unfortunately, Danielle did not qualify for any clinical trials through UCSF due to "high blood liver numbers".  She is slotted to begin chemotherapy on Wednesday, May 3rd.  Please send her well wishes and share this fundraiser on your social media pages.  Thank you!
