Help Melissa Crush Cancer

Say Hello to Melissa Turek, Three years ago, as the result of a terrible automobile accident, Melissa lost her beloved husband Michael. It was the day before Christmas when she discovered she faced the greatest challenged of her life, or so she thought. As she slowly recovered from such a horrible loss, a new more devastating event entered her life, the diagnosis of cancer! For the past year Melissa has been in the fight of her life as she battles a very aggressive form of small cell lung cancer that has metastasized to her esophagus and heart. She is currently undergoing advance treatment that includes chemo and radiation therapy. Yet her medical bills are climbing and her biggest fear is she may lose her home which she shares which her constant companion a husky dog named Chloe. Her friends and family are trying to help, yet the cost of her treatment continues to skyrocket. Can you join us and rally around Melissa to support her. Any amount will show the love and kindness we have! Please help Melissa with her courageous fight
