Support Danielle's Fight Against Cancer

Dearest Friends!

Danielle and Keith Hickey need our help!  On Monday, November 16th, 2020, Danielle received devastating news of a Stage 4 Lung Cancer diagnosis. Danielle is a non-smoker and only within the last month, was she experiencing some health symptoms.  Never could she imagine that these symptoms were cancer and that they had already spread to much of her body. Danielle is only 38 years old and a wonderfully devoted mother to 4 beautiful young children (Reagan 11, Shane 10, Finn 7 and Erin 5) and a fur-mom to the most well-behaved Golden Retriever pups, Maggie and Nellie.

In the matter of one week, Danielle is now in the fight of her life and will be receiving immediate treatment that will cost more than any one family can take-on themselves… and they need our help!

Danielle's high-school sweetheart and husband of 15 years, Keith Hickey, has written a beautiful, but heart wrenching account of what Danielle has gone through this past week.  We hope you will take a moment to read it on her Caring Bridge page and consider making a donation to help this wonderful family…  With your help, we can help our sweet friend get all of the medical care she needs, and allow her to spend all of her energy on healing and loving her family.  Let’s take all of the other added stress off their plate.  Spread the word.  We will be forever grateful for your support!

*** If you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation benefiting the Hickey Family that may qualify for certain corporate matching donations, you can also contribute directly to Willowsford Cares, the non-profit community service club in Danielle's neighborhood.  This club intends to organize events for additional support of the Hickey Family.  This can be done via Paypal to WillowsfordCares (at) gmail (dot) com with a note stating “For the benefit of the Hickey Family.” Qualifying for matching will depend on a company's specific rules governing charitable donations, so feel free to reach out to Mark from Willowsford Cares at danzenbaker (at) gmail (dot) com or (703) 582-6275 to discuss your company's process***
