The Story

Dear family and friends:

You may remember twenty years ago I battled with breast cancer when my daughter Danielle was only ten years old.  By the grace of God I have been cancer free ever since then, and now it has come back to invade not my body but Danielle's.  She is 30 years old and has been diagnosed with cancer of the left breast and biopsy reports show that it has invaded her lymph nodes as well.  Danielle is a courageous young woman and she is facing this head on, a quality to be admired.  She has already gone through two mammograms, two needle biopsies, CT Scan and an MRI.  First course of treatment will be chemotherapy for 3-4 months to shrink the tumor followed by surgery and possible double mastectomy. 

As most of you know, Danielle relocated to Los Angeles two years ago in April, and just started a new job a few months ago.  Although her employer has been very graceful and supportive, we are unsure if she will receive any disability assistance during her medical leave from work to help with the medical treatments and expenses.  These funds will be used as follows:  Approximately $7K in insurance deductibles, procedures and chemotherapy treatments.  The other $8K in monthly financial responsibilities after surgery and while receiving chemotherapy treatments until she is able to return to work.

I am taking the liberty to post this fundraiser to humbly request your help in helping Danielle with a gift of any amount, and most importantly offer your prayers for courage and strength during the long journey ahead to recovery.

We are battling this disease once again but with the certainty that Danielle will win the fight because for God nothing is impossible!

Please keep Danielle in your prayers.  Updates about her health and condition will be posted as they develop.  With a grateful heart, we thank you for your generosity.

Dear friends  - Just a quick post to share the good news!!! It's been eight months since Danielle was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. Time surely flies by, and not necessarily when having fun, as they say.  During all those long months, she has gone through two different kind of chemo treatments.  In the last three months having to switch to a more aggressive form of chemo because the PET scan results she had at the end of the first three months did not show much difference in the size of the tumors, they were still very active and bright, but thanks be to the Grace of God and to all the prayers and support she receives daily, the last PET scan results were "EXCELLENT!" according to Danielle's medical oncologist. No more chemo for Danielle! For now she is on a hormone blocker oral daily medication and monthly injections.  I just want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for being so supportive of Danielle and for your continued contribution to her crowdfunding, and for also following her blog and podcast.  It is just amazing what God does in our lives and we are thankful.  Danielle is a strong resilient person and having such loving support has made her journey much tolerable.  Thank you is not enough.  May you be blessed for sharing your love and compassion. Regards to all. Violet
