Danielle Janofsky Memorial Trust

On February 27, 2017, K9 Officer Max Janofsky lost his amazing wife, Danielle, after her courageous battle with cancer, lasting only about three weeks.

Danielle “Dani” Janofsky was 6 months pregnant when she entered the hospital with abdominal pains on February 8, 2017. It was quickly discovered that melanoma had spread to her liver, kidney, stomach, and finally, brain. She made the selfless and loving decision to deliver baby Jake on Friday February 24th thereby sacrificing herself so that her son could live. Jake was born 1 pound 11 ounces and is currently in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the University of Pennsylvania where he recently met his big sister Avery, age 4.

Dani, devoted mother, loving wife, much-loved sister, beloved daughter and cherished daughter-in-law lost her very short battle with cancer on February 27, 2017.

Dani’s husband Max, a K9 police officer in Monroe Township New Jersey, was by her side every minute helping to ease her pain and remind her of how much love surrounds her and her family. Max is a retired Staff Sargeant, Bronze Star recipient, combat  veteran who served several tours in Iraq and Afghanistan for the United States Army.

This fundraising page has been developed to benefit trust funds for Avery and Jake Janofsky. Funds will be used to ensure the best medical care for Jake and additional funds will be used for education purposes for the children.

We appreciate you taking the time to read this description of a bright life that ended too soon and hope that you will carry the love Dani had for her family, especially her children, with you as an inspiration to live everyday fully and love everyone fiercely.

Thank you for considering a donation in her honor.
