Danna Bowe

Paxton’s Momma/President

Paxton’s Momma, Danna is grateful that PAX provides a forum for her to make good on a promise she made to her son: to never, ever give up his fight. As she does, Danna is honored to say his name, tell his story – and spread PaxLove across the globe. Danna resides in Elm Grove, with Paxton’s little sister – Nova Paxton. In addition to being a single mother to her ‘Sunshine boy’ and her ‘Starshine girl’, our fearless Warrior Momma spends her days as a high school special education teacher, and her nights as a cancer fighting ninja.

Allison Bussler

Board Member

A childhood friend to Danna and forever friend to Paxton, Allison enjoys being able to ease the unimaginable burden families fighting childhood cancer endure on a daily basis. After watching the devastating impact childhood cancer had on Danna’s life – Allison was compelled to aide in the fight on behalf of other families.  Her favorite part of PAX is rolling Paxton’s Treat Cart through the halls of the HOT Unit & the MACC Clinic at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. The smiles the PAX cart brings to the warriors’ faces, along with Paxton’s life spark within her heart, is what keeps Allison coming back for more. Allison is the Director of Public Works for Waukesha County. She resides in Menomonee Falls with her husband, Bill, and their three beautiful daughters.
