Donna’s Story

Site created on October 31, 2018

Hey all and thanks for coming by to read about Donna's Story. As all of you may know Donna, she such a kind and selfless woman. Donna is a wife to Scotty Toole, a mother to Dawn (husband Justin) and Derrick (significant other, Jessica), and a Mammaw to Dominick and McKinna. Donna has always like a mother to me(Danielle Gontarz/Gard), Katelyn Henson (Coffman) and many more. One thing that Donna has taught me and that I have always held dear, is taking care of your family and loved ones. I watched Donna take care of her sick parents, work multiple jobs, and still be a mother to teens! She NEVER complained and always had a great sense of humor! I could go on about all the great things about Donna!

I am writing today to update friends and family. Donna has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and has a long road ahead of her. She is going to go through multiple rounds of chemotherapy and surgeries. I wanted to create a spot that friends and family can see updates on Donna, write her a message, and send love and prayers. She has been in the hospital for now over a week and had a long road ahead. 

Not only is this going to be a lengthy process, its a costly one too... Donna has a Go Fund Me page to help with medical bills. Most importantly prayers and love for Donna during her time in need.
