Save Danielle & kids Breast Cancer

I'm Keith Arruda and I'm trying to help the mother of my children. We have been through a ton over the years. Good and bad...no one's life is easy. I'm here helping her now through this tough time. She was just recently diagnosed with breast cancer that is invasive and she just had a double mastectomy. Now we found out that the cancer has spread into the lymph nodes. We have now gotten a treatment plan. Chemotherapy and radiation. Followed up by tamoxifen for 10 years. Its going to be a long road to recovery but we are gonna fight this all the way .

I'm not able to help much either as I am currently not working  due to lack of snow fall this winter. It hurts not to be able to provide for my family. We have two  children together and I can't see them suffer. She will be starting chemo and radiation therapy soon and we are very worried because she also has a pseudotumor in her brain, which makes treatment a little more difficult.

I ask that if you can please help her get through this tough time by supporting with small donation,
anything would help. I'm just trying to keep her and the kids stable with the bills paid so she can focus on her recovery.  Trying to make this as less stressful as possible for her during this tough time. Any donations will go towards medical supplies, utility bills food, and gas to get back and forth to the doctors. Please pray for her as I do. I will forever be grateful for any help given to her and my children.  All donations will go directly into an account that only she has access to. 

Thank you,

Keith Arruda

Hi everyone, here is an update on Danielle. She has recently developed an infection around the implants after the bilateral mastectomy and is now being treated with several different antibiotics. She will be meeting with a Vascular Surgeon next week to have a minor surgery to get a port put into her chest to make it easier for her to receive Chemotherapy. She will actually be starting Chemotherapy next Friday, the day before her birthday. We are grateful for all of the prayers and continued support from friends and family members. She definitely is feeling very loved and supported. She is a little over half way to her goal and still in need of help. Please continue to share and support her story. We thank you and god bless!
