The family of Dani Johnson-Magnuson is uniting to raise money to defray the cost of mounting medical bills. Please show your support!

Dani was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic colon cancer that spread to her abdominal wall. Her specific type of cancer is rare, aggressive, and not considered "curable", however with the right treatment her cancer could be put into remission. As if the overwhelming fight of your life and the dreadful side effects of chemotherapy aren’t difficult enough to deal with, Dani also lost her esteemed position she held for 12 years as Title Agent. Dani became involved with Relay for Life on behalf of our sister Terri, diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. Dani attended the Relays, was consistently among the highest on the list of donations raised, formed and organized her teams, assisted in organizing the survivors dinner, ultimately becoming Co-Chairperson, but eventually had to relinquish her involvement due to her own declining health.

Dani recently received the devastating news that despite her doctor’s expertise and efforts, PET scan results indicate that the cancer has progressed, also metastasizing to her liver. Unfortunately, these latest findings are forcing Dani to consider other treatment options, one of which would be with a specialist highly experienced and well trained in the HIPEC procedure (surgery/heated chemotherapy). There have been and will continue to be numerous out of pocket expenses not covered by insurance, adding to the very high "cost of living". Pun intended. We have hope that Dani will have the means to continue to fight, but the road will be long and the medical bills quite hefty.

We hope that you will join us in the only thing we can do at this point--help alleviate such a monumental financial burden so Dani can concentrate solely on her healing.

Please donate any amount. Donations may be made through this Give Forward website, or if you prefer, you can also send a personal check by mail to the address below:

We thank all of Dani's "Guardian Angels" whose love, support, and prayers help us through this difficult time.

If you have any questions about your donation, contact the organizer of the fundraiser.

Dani invites everyone to visit her CarePages blog to keep you updated along her journey, which includes appointments, results, procedures, and of course how she's feeling and dealing with it.
