One Tuff Chick- Melissa Reina

Our dear friend Melissa Reina was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma 1 1/2 years ago.  This extremely rare cancer only affects 2500 people in the US per year. She had her eye removed last October in effort to stop the cancer from spreading. Unfortunately, she was recently diagnosed with metastatic disease, for which there is no known cure. She now begins the fight for her life.

She is a wife, mother of Gianna, 8 and Jayden, 2. She is light, she is love; she has been incredibly positive throughout this entire process. Your donations will help to ease their medical bills, transportation costs, and boarding while facing this journey ahead.
