Danica and Declan: A Memoriam for Aaron Brennan
Danica and Aaron have been together for 10 years and happily married in the summer of 2016. After being unable to conceive a child, they took steps to attempt to try IVF. On the second attempt, they were extremely happy to announce Danica had become pregnant with their son. Declan was born May 23rd, 2018, beating the odds and giving Danica and Aaron the overwhelming joy of becoming parents.
In February 2019 after months of illness, Danica's Husband, Aaron was diagnosed with aggressive stage 4 cancer which had spread throughout his body. In April, the doctors gave him 4-6 months to live with no curative treatment available. Sadly, Aaron lost his brave battle with cancer on June 6th, leaving behind his Wife and child.
At the time of his diagnoses, Danica was on maternity leave from work with minimal income and Aaron had been forced to stop working for several months prior due to illness. This was of obvious hardship for the two of them raising their little son, Declan. Danica has just finished her maternity leave and is currently off work grieving without income. She has a mortgage, car payments, and all other costs of living for her and her son to manage. When she returns to work, she will be needing to pay for childcare for her son. On top of this, she is planning a celebration of life for Aaron, which also has costs.
No grieving spouse/parent should have to worry about financial burdens. It would be nice if we could assist Danica and Declan in any way possible. If you are able to donate in this heartbreaking time, please do. Any amount is appreciated.
It has been so great to see such an unbelievable amount of support for Danica and Declan! Thank-you so much to all those who have donated and/or shared this campaign! We are so very close to our goal. Please share this again so we can reach it together.
