Dana's Cancer Fund

Donation protected
On April 14th, Dana was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of ovarian cancer called Carcinosarcoma. Within one week it had aggressively grown which blocked her bowels. She had emergency surgery on April 22nd to remove the tumors only to find that the cancer had spread throughout her abdomen and bowels. Doctors did not remove all of the tumors during the first surgery because that would have required the complete removal of her bowel system and delayed the option of chemo.

After a week of recuperating at Kaiser, she was sent home, but is unfortunately unable to eat any solid food. For the next 6 weeks she will receive her nutrition via an I.V. line called a T.P.N. In addition, Dana is also undergoing chemotherapy and will require another surgery in the near future. Dana has a great support system of family and friends to help her, but she does required around the clock in-home care.

Dana is self-employed and recently took over her Father's business after he retired. She was just getting started on building her business when we were all shocked by this awful news. Unfortunately, Dana's cancer is what doctors refer to as "chronic" which means it will continue to be recurring even if she if she is able to get this into remission. Due to her major emergency surgery and chemo, Dana is currently unable to work for the foreseeable future. During this time of no income and the increasing medical expenses, we are asking her family, friends and network to donate what they can to help Dana cover ongoing medical costs and her loss of income.
