Support for Danielle Gareau
Organized by: Natalie Clifton
Hello everyone, Danielle (Basinicki) Gareau is an amazing mother, grandmother, friend and daughter. She has never hesitated to be there for anyone and, in this time of need, it pains her family that we cannot relieve the financial stress caused by being on disability. She is currently only receiving 55% of her wage and this barely covers her mortgage and minimal groceries. We have done all we can to keep the utilities and water on but this has had a large impact on our own homes and families. As a family, we have started this page to get her through the next year. We have been able to successfully support her emotionally and physically, but we want to make sure that she doesn’t lose her home and has the basic necessities to live.
Since April 2016, Danielle has been off of work to deal with failing health issues. She was diagnosed with a rare form of asthma and, recently, congestive heart failure. She can do basic jobs on her own, but her family has stepped in to do the cooking, driving to appointments, cleaning, getting dressed, having a bath, and other daily tasks. Complications from medications and treatment, including a trial drug, has affected the amount that she is capable of doing. Side effects have started to affect her heart, which has lead to severe congestive heart failure. She is now unable to maintain her blood pressure and pulse. Stress from not being able to pay bills and potentially losing her home has affected this greatly. Danielle has been in and out of the hospital quite often in the past few weeks and, needless to say, the bills are adding up and she is unable to keep up with everything. We don’t feel like she deserves to lose her home because of her illness. We hope one day we can find a medication that can control this as we are still seeing a specialist every week. Until then we are asking for any support that you can give. We appreciate any donations or contributions you can make to this worthy cause.
In addition to this crowdrise fundraiser, we are hosting a steak night fundraiser at the Press Box Sports Bar on November 27 from 5:00-9:00 in hopes of raising some more funds. We would really like to help take some of the burden off of Danielle so she can concentrate more on her health and trying to get feeling better. Danielle has a young family and grandchildren who need her. For tickets to the steak night fundraiser, please call Jamie Cross (306)551-2084 or Natalie Clifton (306) 529-2763.
We thank you in advance for any and all of your help. Please share this post to get the word out.
