One of Danson’s other sons, Mohamed Camara, has launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for her funeral.

“Danson, a mother of six, came to America in the 90s with the plan of building a better life for herself and her family. She was one of the most kind hearted and family oriented people.

“Unfortunately, after having a rough relationship with her eldest son for a few years he decided to take her life on Tuesday morning. Sadly her life came to an end but she’s in a better place now,” Camara wrote.
