The Danny Fund

video


The Danny Fund was founded in 1993 when a four-year-old Pelham boy named Danny was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. To help, friends provided warmth, love and emotional support to let the parents know they were not alone. They rallied around the family and raised money through bake sales, winter softball games and word of mouth. Danny responded to his treatment, his cancer is in remission, and he is now leading the active and normal life of a 20 year-old. With the crisis behind them, the small group of organizers met. If they could help one family in a meaningful way, why not others? The Danny Fund was born.



Every year the Danny Fund holds a fundraiser.  It is a fun gathering of community members and patrons, along with Danny Fund families.  The mission of the Danny Fund is to help families whose child has been hit by a catastrophic illness.  We are one such family and we ask that you join us on February 11th or make a donation here. For more information, leave me a comment or email given2fly46@yahoo.com.   We cannot thank the Danny Fund enough for all they have done for us.  The video above says it all.
