The Danielle Holmes Yagjian Foundation

The Danielle Holmes Yagjian Foundation (DHYF) is a Non-Profit Organization that was founded in the Spring of 2012.  The DHYF has been formed by family and friends of Danielle Holmes Yagjian to carry out her wishes of helping others with cancer, along with their caregivers, in need.

At the young age of 28,  Danielle was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma with the ELK gene, one of only 40 people in the United States diagnosed with this rare type of cancer.

Danielle’s one year battle, included 12 rounds of chemo, 2 full body radiation treatments and a baby cord stem cell transplant.  One of Danielle’s personal wishes was to be able to watch her son turn 1 years old, she did just that in August 2011!  Danielle lost her battle on October 3, 2011.  She left behind her 14 month old son Cole, husband Jared of 3 years, family and many friends.

Danielle’s main wish was to “Make a Difference” by giving back to others fighting with cancer.  During her battle, the outpouring of support she received from family, friends and even strangers was abundant.  Hence, she wanted to do the same for others in her position. This foundation was established in order to make that wish come true.

There are many ways in which you can support the DHYF!
