Meet Michelle Kaley, along with her amazing family (Cameron, Alexia - 17, Devon - 16, Aubrey - 12, & Landon - 7)!

Michelle was diagnosed with melanoma in October 2016 that has spread to her lungs and now her brain. She got the horribly  unfortunate news Friday the 4th that there are 13 tumors in her brain that have begun to hemorrhage. 

She and her family have never asked for help (and still aren't) but our community is strong and they need our help. They are the family that is ALWAYS helping others through church, school, and community. Now it's our turn to help and support them! 

Let's support this family through this time. Give what you can if you're able. Funds will be used for medical expenses, care for the family as well as final preparations. 

PLEASE USE THE CARE CALENDAR BELOW FOR MEALS AND OTHER WAYS WE CAN HELP THE KALEY'S.

From Cameron - 9/12/18

Our dear Michelle has gone to rejoin her father, she is now in the care of her Heavenly Father and is free from the battle that she has courageously fought for the past two years. We are grateful that her passing was without suffering and that she can now have peace. I know that now she can both hear clearly the prayers that have been issued on her behalf and feel of the love that so many have expressed for her. I am grateful for the extra time that I was given and for the strength that she has left me with. I know that I do not continue in this journey alone for she will be walking beside me every step of the way guiding and conversing with me and inspiring me as to how to continue in the work that is yet to be done.

Michelle was an inspiration to so many people and I am grateful for those of you that have returned that kindness to her family in caring for us during these difficult times. Know that our faith sustains us and that the slow pace with which things have progressed has help to ease us into this next phase. At this time please respect the privacy of myself and the children, we will take the time we need to mourn and lay her to rest in our own way. There will be a memorial planned at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 8140 Racine Trail, Austin, TX 78717 Saturday afternoon, details to follow, all will be invited to attend. When the time is right you may convey any condolences to me, but please be mindful of what you say to my children, they know what they have lost, they don’t need to be afraid that everywhere they go they risk someone reminding them of that. Just be the friend they need, they will let you know if they need to talk.

In the meantime, do as Michelle would ask and “Find Joy in the Journey”. It has been an unexpected life but a fulfilling one and there is still work for each of us to do and plenty of hearts that need to be lifted up.

The support for the Kaley family is overwhelming and words can not express their gratitude. Michelle has always been one to dream BIG and reach for the impossible so in her honor lets all reach higher!

No amount of money will lessen the gravity of this diagnosis, but it does allow the Kaley's to focus on Michelle and not the stress of the financials. Every dollar raised helps to fund Michelle's final celebration of life, to ease the stress of paying for the scans, medications, procedures, and the impending loss of income. The Kaley's continue to negotiate bills from 2016 resulting from the $80,000 immunotherapy (per dose), the yearly $6000 deductible, or the $2000 medical device that was required. This doesn't even begin to mention the cost of 2017 or 2018 and this bills that will continue to come. I'm sure we have all thought "what if I lost my wife or mother of my children", but for the Kaley's this is their reality and they deserve to celebrate Michelle rather than worry about the current and possible financial impact of cancer. You have all been so amazing and that is why we believe that with your support, sharing, liking we can get to $30,000 and beyond!
