Dianne Dysthe Burrell Family

$26,640 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 320 people in 41 months
Hi..my name is Annie Ellis. I am a dear friend and former Nanny for Dianne and Dave Dysthe Burrell and Gracie and Mia. I began taking care of Gracie when she was 8 months old and have helped care for Mia since birth.

Dianne has finally agreed that we (as her friends and family) may start this GoFundMe account for them. I would like her to see how this will help her family during these difficult times, and help carry them through times ahead as well. I know she will feel comforted to know that financial support is available.

For anyone who doesnt know the Burrell family, Dianne is a beautiful mother of two precious little girls. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast  Cancer about a year ago and has been fighting furiously. The need for financial support is obvious, as she has had a permanent loss of income..which her family has depended upon. Im also hoping to allow for her husband Dave to take as much time off as needed and able when times get tough.

I realize the goal is very large, however I feel no goal is too large, as well as no gift is too small! (or too big of course!) I know that all of Dianne's dear friends and family have helped in so many ways, and that many will want to contribute to this worthy funding campaign as well. Go Fund Me and WePay do take a small percentage of your contribution, so please keep this in mind when making contributions, that you are ok with this. You can view their policy at their site. Basically, it adds up to about 8%. Please be assured that every penny raised other than these fees is going directly to Dianne and Dave.

Please share on Facebook and Twitter if you can! There is power in numbers and again, no gift is too small! :)

Thank you very much for considering support of this dear family! And, on behalf of Dianne and Dave, your support is so appreciated. Thank you very much!

I am happy to report to all of Dave and Diannes supporters, friends and family, that I delivered a cashiers check to Dave today representing all of the donations up until 4/5/2015. He will now have an automatic withdrawal monthly on the first, which he will then receive a check around the 5th of each month, for any further donations that are made. You will continue to see the percentage of goal increase, as it is not a balance in an account, but an amount towards the goal specified.

Of course Dave was overwhelmed by the generosity of friends, family and strangers alike! Thank you so much for all of your support, prayers, meals, playdates, etc. You have made such a difference in the lives of this beautiful family as they continue on, cherishing the memory of Dianne. I know she is watching and smiling to see how you have cared for the ones she has left behind, "her true treasures".
Blessings to you all!

Dear friends and family of Dianne Dysthe Burrell,
Thank you for your generous support of the Gofundme campaign! I am going to be cutting a check to Dave next week! I would love to give the fundraiser a huge boost before I do this payout! I want to see this campaign take off like wildfire again! Also, before Dianne had agreed to this fundraiser, she requested that donations as a result of her passing be made to Little Pink Houses, a retreat for families dealing with Breast Cancer. I spoke with Dave yesterday, and he agreed that he will be making a donation from these proceeds to Little Pink Houses, that way, (from this point on), when you give to this fundraiser, you will also be supporting Diannes wishes to support Little Pink Houses! Or, of course you can give your full donation to littlepink.org!

I really want to give this a piggy back boost, so please remember that all donations no matter how small add up to alot! I would love to be able to give him a check for over $30,000.00 next week! Lets make this explode this weekend!

Please take the time to read the story of Little Pink Houses... it is an incredible, inspiring story, and very near and dear to Diannes heart! The founder of Little Pink Houses, a Breast Cancer fighter herself, created this organization around the same time Dianne was diagnosed. It is amazing how much she has accomplished over the last five years, while in her own fight against Breast Cancer!

I wanted to make this an easy way for people to support both Diannes family, and Little Pink Houses all at the same time, however, if you wish to give your donation directly to Little Pink Houses, that makes Dianne very happy too!

Please continue sharing your memories and stories about Dianne on her FB page! It has been a treasure trove for me and others to go to her page and see how many lives she has touched in so many many ways, and especially seeing all the fun that girl was having with all of you!

Many thanks to all! I will keep the link for gofundme easy to find and share on Diannes page!
