As you may know, last year Linni was diagnosed with lung cancer. Always one to be active, Linni has devoted her life to dancing, dance therapy, and to raising her beautiful daughter Jesse. So it came as a shock when Linni was sidlined by cancer.
Linni has spent the last number of months battling this terrible disease with the help of her medical team of doctors and nurses and with the support of her friends, family, and loved ones.
Linni's journey has been a long one, and as a result, her medical expenses have begun to pile up. Although her insurance has covered a large portion of her medical expenses, we need YOUR HELP to assist Linni in paying the portion of those expenses that have not been covered and those expenses that she will likely continue to accrue as she continues her battle against cancer and prepares for end of life care.
Every little bit helps, and no donation is too small. Thank you all for your love and support.
Linni's Fan Club
Dearest Friends and Family of Linni,
Your love, support, and generosity over the past few months has been astounding. I know that Linni and her daughter Jesse, truly feel blessed to have each and everyone of you in their lives.
Sadly, on Monday, September 11th, Linni laid her dancing shoes to rest and passed away peacefully in her sleep. Her loyal pup "Piper" laid by her feet while Jesse said her final good-bye. As you all know, Linni was truly one of a kind and she will forever be missed by those of us who were blessed enough to have her in our lives.
A memorial service will be held at the Quogue chapel at 4:30pm on Sunday, September 24th followed by the scattering of ashes in the memorial garden at the Westhampton Presbyterian Church and reception.
In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to the Marian Chace Foundation in honor of Linni Deihl (https://adta.org/support-the-mcf/) to commemorate her life's work in Dance Movement Therapy or will be continue to be accepted via this Go-Fund-Me page. All proceeds from the Go-Fund-Me beyond medical costs will be donated to the Foundation.
