In June 2014 Danielle was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. It had spread to her lymph nodes and lungs. After having a right mastectomy, a tumor removed from her neck and a left lobectomy, she has been undergoing chemotherapy treatments ever since.
After trying to get stronger on her own, she joined the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program for cancer survivors. "It makes going to the Y so much easier knowing I'm walking into a group of people who can relate to me. I'm so grateful for the kindness of the Livestrong program. They give me hope that I will get stronger," said Danielle.
