Diana Parson's Medical Fund

Diana Parson's life took an unexpected turn back in 1999 when she was diagnosed with her first round of breast cancer. She conquered her first battle with the help of chemotherapy and radiation. Diana was in remission until 2011 when she was diagnosed again with breast cancer. She received chemotherapy, radiation and had a mastectomy preformed. Her bad luck didn't stop there- on December 23, 2016 Diana was diagnosed with Stage 4 Leptomeningeal disease. Prior to her diagnosis she was experiencing vertigo and other severe symptoms for nearly 15 months. Diana made countless trips to a variety of hospitals and clinics for CT, PET, MRI scans, blood draws and many other extensive procedures. We later found out her disease had metastasized from her two previous battles with breast cancer. This time the cancer was in her spinal and brain fluid. After numerous high dose chemotherapies, brain radiation treatments and experimental drugs failed, unfortunately Diana is now in hospice care. Not for lack of fight, she has fought this disease with extraordinary strength, courage, and complete selflessness. She is a true inspiration.

Diana Parson is our mother, wife, grandma, sister, aunt, great aunt and dear friend. Diana has a heart of gold and makes everyone she encounters feel welcome and loved. She absolutely adores spending time with her two grandchildren, Easton and Cayden. They are the light of her life aside from her loving husband Jeff and their two children, Travis and Kristi. Diana worked full time while raising their kids and always had home cooked meals on the table every night in their immaculately maintained, warm, and loving home. Everyone knows the Parson door is always open. She enjoys spending time with family and friends. Her hobbies include riding horses, spoiling her grand-dog; lady, her love for the outdoors, four wheeling, snowmobiling, going out on the boat, and spending time up at their cabin in Webster, WI.

Many family and friends have been asking how to help. 

Our family has incurred many extensive medical bills, due to the tremendous cost of cancer treatments. Your support is invaluable now. Diana and family have been blindsided by this diagnosis in every way imaginable. Diana worked full time up until she was no longer able to. In the midst of Diana’s 9 month battle, Jeff had total knee replacement and was put out of work. Now Diana's husband, along with daughter have taken leaves of absence from their jobs to help grant Diana’s wish of staying comfortably in her home. Any contribution will be so greatly appreciated. We are hoping to be able to put all of our focus on Diana and less on our financial burden.

Send blessings, love and prayers to Diana, Jeff, Travis, Kristi and family.
