Help Dena Fight Breast Cancer


At 37-years young, Dena was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The daughter of Rick and Sharyl Sletten of Fergus Falls, Minnesota and a 1999 graduate of Fergus Falls High School, Dena works as a nurse near San Francisco, California.

While doctors continue to determine the best course of treatment for Dena, she may undergo chemotherapy which would make it difficult to cover her $1,000 a month medical insurance premiums, medical co-pays and living costs as a single woman.

Additionally, Dena is considering harvesting her eggs prior to treatment, a cost not covered by insurance.

We are holding this online fundraiser to help Dena offset the costs of this terrible disease. Please donate
here to help support Dena through her cancer treatments.

If you prefer, donations can be mailed to:
Dena Sletten
1716 Rosemary Lane
Redwood City, California 94061

The first 50 people who donate $50 or more online will receive a Team Dena Wonder Woman T-shirt. The cost of making the T-shirt is being covered by Dena's sister, Shanna, so all donations will go directly to Dena. Please include contact details in your donation comments so we can contact you about your T-shirt size and mailing address. (5 - Small, 20 - Medium, 20 - Large, 5 - XL). 

After the shirts are gone, the next 10 people who donate $55 or more online will receive a FREE custom sterling silver or 14k gold fill bangle with sea glass bead and cancer sucks ribbon charm. The cost of making the bangle is being covered by Malia, so all donations will go directly to Dena. Please include contact details in your donation comments.

Our entire family thanks you in advance for supporting Dena during this time. She is our Wonder Woman.
