Help MJ's Battle Against Leukemia

I still remember the day I received the call from my niece/goddaughter MJ to tell me about her leukemia diagnosis.  It was November of 2011 that she decided to tell me and ask for the support of her family through this dreadful life change.  She was only 23 years old with a diagnosis that changed the course of her life.  She had tough decisions to make about her treatment and overwhelming expenses at a young age.  It has been three years since the terrible news and she continues to fight her battle.  Unfortunately, her insurance has only covered about 50% of her total costs and she has accumulated an enormous amount of debt battling her leukemia.  MJ’s doctors continue to encourage her to follow through with her treatments so that the progress she has made thus far will not be hindered.  She was told that she needs to pay upwards of $15,000 or the treatments cannot continue as planned due to her enormous outstanding balance.  I cannot fathom her skipping her treatment due to insufficient funds.  Therefore, I decided to take it upon myself to start a GoFundMe account to help her continue her chemotherapy/radiation in a timely manner.  I hope and pray that all of MJ’s friends and family can provide a donation, no matter how small to help pay for her much needed treatments.   Please share her story even if you cannot donate at this time.  Thank you for your support!!
