Realising what's important
Danielle’s world came tumbling down when what she thought was DVT was actually diagnosed as Sarcoma. After months of hospital appointments all the 33-year-old wanted was to spend time with her family so she asked Willow for a break to Center Parcs.
"I was a fashion designer who travelled to the Far East several times a year and when my leg swelled after a trip to China, my partner, John, and I foolishly thought it was deep vein thrombosis.
When I was diagnosed with Sarcoma, I felt numb. John couldn’t believe it and my mum was, and still is, devastated. Sarcoma had taken over all of our lives.
Our trip to Center Parcs gave us a much-needed break from hospitals and talking about hospitals and allowed us to enjoy some ‘us’ time.
