In February 2015, my daughter Danielle was diagnosed with leukemia. She was 25 years old, and a professional dancer out on tour in Detroit when I got the call no mom ever wants to hear. She said, "Mom are you sitting down? The doctor says I have leukemia". Just typing this makes my heart sink.
She has been such a trooper three long years of treatments but i am here to say she is doing well. She met an angel while going through treatment and is getting married in May 2018! It has been the hardest three years of both of our lives but we now can look ahead.
Danielle met Hillary, a spokesperson for LLS who helped her through this journey and I know someday she would love to also be a spokesperson and help others.
I happy to say Danielle rang the “Big Bell” in November 2017. She has been such an inspiration to so many people. Thank you LLS for all that you do!
