Deidra Munsanto is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Danielle Williams.
If you've ever met Danielle, you know what a kind heart and amazing spirit she has. Her bubbly personality and smile are contagious. If you happened to meet her today, it would be no different, which is just short of incredible considering all that she and her family have been through in recent years.
Shortly after her mother passed away due to a recurrence of uterine cancer, her husband was diagnosed with bladder cancer. In the last 3 months, his condition changed to terminal despite aggressive chemo treatments. The medical bills have been mounting as the number of ER visits, hospital stays and treatments grow.
Danielle has been by his side at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Newnan while juggling 2 full time jobs: xray tech and her most important title of all- mother. Through it all, she has managed to stay positive and prayerful.
In the midst of that turmoil, Danielle was diagnosed with Invasive Mammary Carcinoma ( breast cancer) just 1 month ago. While it is unexpected for someone so young (only 4% of invasive breast cancers last year were in women under 40), her keen intuition and swift action allowed for early diagnosis. With any type of cancer, prompt intervention is paramount.
She is scheduled for surgery October 23rd and will undergo a mastectomy with reconstruction , in the hopes of alleviating the need for additional surgeries, radiation or chemotherapy. Despite such difficult and shocking news, she has remained a pillar of strength for those around her, namely her children.
We know of her amazing determination and strong will, and she only sees solutions, not problems! She has already begun forging a plan for her family while she will be out of work and starting the long road to recovery.
However, dealing with unpredictable absences to care for a spouse, along with a 2-3 month recovery means she does not have sufficient vacation time to cover her post procedure period. This is not something any 34 year old woman should have to think about but it has become her reality.
Her friends and family will be there for her during this time in any way possible, whether its preparing a meal, folding laundry, keeping her company, or getting the kids to after school activities or church. The truth is, she could use a little more help!
Any donations provided will be used to cover basic necessities and expenses related to running a household and caring for her kids. It will also take care of non covered medical costs and follow up care. The last thing she needs to do is stress about financial responsibilities as she recuperates. We need as much support as we can to allow Danielle to focus on her health and beating this horrible diagnosis. She is a warrior in every sense of the word!
All those who love her thank you in advance for whatever you may contribute, no amount is too small!
