Danielle Wilson is 40 years old and battling a rare cancer that the doctors at Mayo Clinic are still studying called Lyposarcoma high grade cancer. Her cancer is in her lower abdomen and was successfully removed once in 2018 while pregnant with her daughter. She was initially told she would have to abort her baby but thankfully they removed the cancer and that wasn’t the case. She is the mother to two young children; 4 year old Kailer (who lost his father to cancer this June) and FayAnne her little miracle baby. (Pictured above)
Dani used to be a security guard at Dakota Connection Casino but she has resigned from herjob since her husband passed away. She decided she needed to stay home with her children especially her son who was very close to his dad as he lived with his dad up until he lost his battle to cancer. Little did she know that her time off was going to be not only to care for her young babies but also to take time to take care and heal herself. This is when she found out her cancer had returned and she needed to set up a plan for treatment.
Dani has been set up with daily radiation treatments in Fargo ND which is a 180 miles round-trip. She is scheduled 6 weeks of daily radiation to shrink the cancerous tumor which has attached itself to her pelvis and possibly surrounding organs. The radiation treatments are targeted where so many other nearby organs are located. The doctors told her she will most likely have long term damage to those surrounding organs. The radiation will affect her ovaries and it will send her into menopause already. It can also affect her bladder resulting in bladder infections. Part of her large intestine may be damaged and may have to be partially removed.
Her tumor removal is scheduled for this coming November after she completes her radiation. At this point her doctors with determine if the cancer has spread to her pelvis or any surrounding organs! We’re hoping for the best!
Dani’s family and friends have been doing their best to help transport her to her daily treatments and help her take care of her babies. This fundraiser has been set up ask for assistance in covering many of the costs entailed with her treatment plan. The funds will mostly be used for travel and food costs and childcare costs topay a babysitter for watching over her babies as she works through trying to complete her treatments.
These costs add up quickly and it can be tough on anyone’s budget when something like this happens. Even if people can donate a small amount; remember, it all adds up and it is more than appreciated! If some are unable to donate, a share would be very helpful as well! Thanks so much, and if anyone would like updates on Dani and her story they are welcome to follow by adding.
