Each day brings challenges to Duane, Kandace, Berkley, and her one-year old sister, Remi. Duane and Kandace must monitor Berkley’s blood counts as her resistance to infection and colds and flu have been compromised through her chemotherapy treatments (a fever recently sent them on an early morning return trip to Children’s). Chemo has also diminished Berkley’s appetite, initiated hair loss, and necessitated in-home medical attention. They must be ready for the unexpected demands of each day.
Duane and Kandace have received generosity from co-workers as well as a home improvement surprise, meals, and childcare help for Remi from family and friends. These acts of kindness have allowed Duane and Kandace to spend as much time as possible with Berkley as she fights her cancer. Thanks to those of you who have offered prayers and kindnesses to the Damhof family; your help has been much appreciated.
As travel expenses and medical bills pile up, one more thing we can do is lift some financial burden from these two great parents. Let’s Go Fund Berkley and show cancer what small town family, neighbors, and friends can do to take on neuroblastoma!
