Chelsea Opheims Journey

A few of you have asked permission to create a site for Chelsea. There will also be an updated Facebook page following Chelsea's journey.

Through this site, you will quickly learn to love this amazing lady and her incredible family as I do. Chelsea is 38 years old.. She was a successful real estate agent in partnership with her father but had to abandon that career due to cancer. Her husband Nathan has a very good job in the electronics industry and is an exceptionally supportive and loving husband.. Together they have raised three beautiful children and a dog Scooter which provide all the necessary motivation to keep Chelsea going and fuel her determination to beat this curse and live a long full life with her wonderful family.

As most of you know, It can be hard for someone battling cancer to deal with the physical, emotional and financial hardships brought on by their illness. So it helps to have a strong support system from friends and family backing them up.
Many don't realize that the list of expenses for a cancer patient doesn't only cover specific treatments, but everything from doctor visits and lab tests to hospital stays and home care, which can add up to tens of thousands of dollars.

Below, please find a short list of the family's immediate needs :

1. Funds for medical treatments not covered by insurance.
2. Funds to pay household bills
3. Last but certainly not least are funds to create memories for Chelsea and her family.
