I would like to take the time to wish Danneel a very Happy 38th Birthday and a beautiful day with her family and friends! Lot of her fans have been very active on Twitter and Tumblr, and Danneel herself took to Twitter to not just thank fans, but also to ask for fans to help raise funds for a fundraiser titled ‘Gracie Needs Your Help!’
The fundraiser has a goal of $50,000 for the daughter of a friend of Danneel’s. Below you can see what it is for:
7-year-old Gracie Zaunbrecher went to a gymnastics meet last weekend to compete with her team, something that she loves. At the meet, however, her balance was off. She was stumbling and disoriented. Two days later, she underwent an MRI and was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare and aggressive brain tumor in the part of the brain stem called the pons, which controls essential bodily functions such as heartbeat, breathing, swallowing, eye movement, eyesight, and balance.
Gracie’s parents, Maile and Byron, learned the devastating statistics on DIPG — the tumor is inoperable and incurable. These are words that no parent should ever have to hear.
Danneel’s tweet is below and please RT!
This is my dear friend from High School's little girl and she needs our help!❤Thanks for all the BDay wishes!!https://t.co/JQ3AzA0Dx7
