Last week on Tuesday, June 19th Alex and Caroline Dane found out that their baby girl, Nora Jean, has a very rare and aggressive type of brain cancer, ETMR. The incredible doctors at Colorado Children’s Hospital have already performed a successful brain surgery, removing the entire tumor! All of the known and visible cancer has been removed surgically, but given the aggressive nature of the cancer, chemotherapy is still necessary, aiming to destroy any cancer cells that remain. After spending 5 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the Danes are back home allowing Nora to rest, heal, and get some much deserved play time. The next phase of their battle will begin on July 5th when they will be admitted back to the hospital for Nora Jean’s first round of induction chemotherapy. Their doctors have outlined an aggressive treatment schedule that is anticipated to last many months and involve several rounds of chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants and proton radiation. The latter of which will be done in Cincinnati in September and October, and require Alex to take leave from work for 6-7 weeks. If you would like to be updated and follow along with the Danes, you can do so on their CaringBridge site - see below.

Life can change so abruptly. From happily chasing your frolicsome toddler up and down hills in the park one day, to sitting in the PICU in the Children's Hospital the next. Can you imagine? Devastating. Heartbreaking. Terrifying. Now try to imagine the shock and tragedy of your sweet little angel’s reality has set in, a bit, and you’re steeling yourself for the battle ahead, when the magnitude of the financial costs associated with this form and level of care begin to come to light. This GoFundMe is here to relieve at least a little of the stress and pressure that the Dane Family is facing. So we’re asking all those family, friends, and generous souls out there to dig deep for the Danes. We understand money can be tight, but any amount you’re able to give will truly make a huge impact on this amazing family.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and donate. You’re continued prayers and positive energy are also greatly needed and appreciated.
