[ # ] What’s Happening’s Danielle Spencer recently got emergency brain surgery
October 19th, 2018 under 70s

Back on the ’70s, Danielle Spencer was known as the tough-talking Dee on What’s Happening. On September 7, 1976, she was in a car accident that left her in a coma for three weeks, a broken leg, arm and pelvis. Her stepfather died in that accident.

Since then she has had several complications from it, the latest one almost killing her. On the 41st anniversary of the accident, she started suffering debilitating headaches. She went back and forth to the doctor and was prescribed medicine. Then she was found unresponsive and rushed to the hospital. Doctors “did emergency brain surgery removing a bleeding hematoma that formed due to the car accident 41 years ago.”

Now she is on the road to recovery, but she needs some financial help. Her friends started a GoFundMe Page to raise the $25,000 she needs during the long rehabilitation period.

Since the show ended she has worked as a veterinarian and did some occasional acting. Back in 2014, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Throughout all of her health issues from the accident and cancer, she remains positive. She will get through this too, she just needs a little help from us.
