Marshall fire victim loses his home while battling cancer

BOULDER COUNTY, Colorado (KDVR) – A woman who lost her home in the Marshall fire is also battling cancer to make things even harder.

About a week before the big fire hit Louisville and the Superior areas, 73-year-old Linda Dugan was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

“She left on December 20,” said her daughter Kim Dugan. “She was diagnosed on the 22nd.”

Linda Dugan lost the home she shared with her best friend on December 30th.

So far, Dugan remains at Boulder Community Hospital. The hope is that she will be released this weekend.

“She loved her house, her neighborhood,” Kim added. “She risks not being able to rebuild, and it’s really heartbreaking.”

The family has established one GoFundMe to help Dugan with the reconstruction and through her struggle.
