For the past 25 years, Donna has devoted her life to caring for those in crisis situations. We have watched her work tirelessly and selflessly to ensure that the local non-profit she runs is able to provide much needed care to local families. So much of her life has been devoted to caring for others, and now it's time for us to care for her.
With the sudden discovery and diagnosis of breast cancer, it has become clear that treatments will need to begin as soon as possible. She will be receiving care at UCSF with the help of an incredible team. She is hoping to approach this with a complimentary model of care, incorporating various dietary changes, supplements, and other alternative treatments alongside the chemo, surgery, and radiation.
This website is the main avenue through which we will keep everyone updated. Additionally, this is where you'll find potential ways to help out as we navigate this new chapter. Much love and many thanks to all who are supporting our family along the way.
**Please note: If you would like to contribute monetarily, you can do so by navigating to the "Ways to Help" section and clicking on the GoFundMe page. That money goes directly to our moms care. (If you click on the "Tribute" button and donate there, that money goes to the CaringBridge company. We had someone mention that they were confused by that so we wanted to clear that up.)
