Yvonne’s Healing Journey

$24,615 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 287 people in 20 months
My name is Melissa and the beautiful family pictured is of my brother Jay, his wife Yvonne and their four, sweet little children. In March of 2016, the surgical oncologist informed my sister-in-law that she has lymphoma. As a young, at the time 31 year old wife, mother of four, and entrepreneur, this was devastating news. However, she immediately suited up mentally to fight against cancer.
For the last ten months, Yvonne has tirelessly worked to maintain a healthy and healing lifestyle in effort to slow down and stop the progression of Lymphoma. She decided to seek out a medical institution that offers alternative cancer treatments to chemotherapy of which her research led her to New Hope Medical Center in Arizona.
As we all know basic medical expenses can add up quickly and with Jay and Yvonne’s focus being on Yvonne’s healing, my family and I are asking for your help in covering Yvonne’s medical expenses for treatment at New Hope Medical Center.

We are believing God for Yvvone's healing, no donation amount is too small and is greatly appreciated.

*A large portion of all funds raised will be withdrawn and paid to New Hope Medical Center for Yvonne’s care, the remaining will be withdrawn and given to Jay and Yvonne.

We ask that you keep us in your prayers.

Thank you,
Melissa Pearson

Good Evening Everybody,
Thank you all so much for your help, prayers and/or visits to see Yvonne. It is extremely important that we limit the number of people visiting her during this time. This is due to the high probability of new germs being introduced to her already weakened immune system. She just isn’t strong enough to fight off a new illness on top of what she is already fighting.
At this time we're asking for visits to be limited to immediate family only. Immunotherapy was started on Friday, please continue to pray.
I will keep everyone updated with as much info as I can.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
We love you all very much.

I wish I could share Yvonne videos with everyone who is not on social media but GoFundMe does not have that option, I can only share pictures and videos I record live. She is doing good, had a little down moment after being informed from the doctor that her cells aren’t responding as they hoped to the chemo. I know that our greatest battles are the ones against ourselves but those are already won, we just have to remain positive and speak positively.
⬆️ So that update was sitting in the box waiting to be posted. The above post was created maybe two months ago, possibly three months ago. Yvonne is currently in the hospital, she is in the icu and will be moved to a regular room soon and then released to go home. Please, please, please, please do not try to contact her. She needs to rest and not become overwhelmed by texts and calls. She loves each of you for your support and as a family we are beyond grateful for all of you!! Your prayers will go so much farther than a call or text made directly to Yvonne so please, keep her in your prayers. She is such a fighter! I mean a serious fighter!! If she was well I believe she could box Mayweather. My girl is strong!!!
The next steps for her are gaining weight, trying a different chemo from the most recent one and then immunotherapy. Again, thank you for your support and prayers and for those who have my contact information you are welcome to contact me. Yvonne really needs her rest and to focus on getting well, it gets difficult when you have so much love pouring in and you aren’t able to speak to everyone and allow them to love on you.

Thank you!

There have been so many positive strides made in these past four months.....it’s only been four months. Major increase in energy, weight gain, lymph nodes gone down, chest tube out, no hair loss from the chemo treatment, enjoying life, friends and family in new ways! She has been so positive every step of the way, which is why I know she will make it over the next hurtle. A more aggressive chemo treatment has been started in effort to completely kill the cancer. Please know that our prayers, your prayers aren’t going unanswered! Keep praying as she keeps fighting!!
All smiles!!!
Before the chest tube was removed.
She’s a fighter!!
