Melanie Makes Us SMILE


Our amazing friend and coworker, Melanie Riley, so bravely battled ovarian cancer in 2016, and has enjoyed a remission for over a year.  Her most recent scan shocked us all...the cancer has returned,

Melanie is 47-years-old; a caring & loving NURSE with a beautiful family.  Her bright and positive outlook has been inspiring to her family, coworkers and patients.  It is with this same positive attitude that Melanie starts the battle again.    This time, however, she hopes to seek the help of specialists from out of the area – and wants to start the fight immediately!

Please help share Melanie's story with your friends and family.  We are asking you to pass this link to your entire circle of influence, and those you speak to.  Melanie is an excellent care-giver to her patients, and is passionate about helping others.  Help us wrap this extraordinary and vibrant woman in the same type of care and love she shows to so many.    We greatly appreciate help with whatever resources you can share; whether it be a message of love and encouragement on this website, or through the mail, text, or email, or a much-needed donation to help offset the cost that accompanies this very specialized and expensive treatment.
