As far as that accident 41 years ago that killed her father, she ended up being in a 3-week coma. Spencer, known for her role as “Dee” on the 1970s sitcom “What’s Happening,” also endured other critical injuries that included a broken leg, arm and pelvis.
Dr. Spencer is recovering, but there’s no word on the estimated time of healing as she also suffered breast cancer and spinal injury in the past. The combination of past health issues raises a red flag on her road to recovery but family and friends are hopeful for her fight.
Friends of Dr. Danielle have started a Go Funding Page as they are all claiming a successful prognosis she will continue to have a long recovery and stint in rehab again and funds raised will help with treatment, medication and sustaining.
