Welcome family and friends! As you may know, Danae was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma in mid June 2021. After a handful of exploratory procedures, she started her journey to remove the “unwanted” that have been taking shelter in her lower abdomen! The words, "It Could be Worse" inspired by her very wise and extraordinary Grandmother, are words that Danae will continue to live by! She has always been able to find the good within any bad, and with an army of family, friends, and loved ones beside her, she is ready for the fight!!
During this challenging time, Danae and her family are trying to keep their daily life as normal as possible. With work schedules, school, and sports activities, their family is busy as ever! We know there are so many that love them and want to help in this time of need and they are so very grateful for you all!
Because Danae loves a good gathering, she has chosen to use this site to share her journey and keep the party going even if she cannot physically attend! This site is a space for everyone to rally around the family and share supportive words, sign-up for the meal train, and help with any small tasks. These requests will be posted under Ways to Help. Donations can be made via Danae's GoFundMe also located under Ways to Help on the Caring Bridge site or at gofundme.com/f/danae-shanabarger
Our goal is to help the family keep their routine while supporting everyone struggling during this bump in the road (or should we say lump in the node ). To provide Danae and her family the privacy and space they need, please direct anyone to this site who has questions or a willingness to help.
These twists and turns may be leading Danae down a path that looks differently than she imagined, but if you know Danae, both paths will always be celebrated with Cocktails.🥂
KEEP ALL THE LOVE, PRAYERS AND POSITIVITY COMING HER WAY AS SHE CONTINUES HER JOURNEY – She is ready to RUMBLE!!
