Team Melissa!! Helping Her Beat Cancer

My name is Nathan. I am the youngest brother of Melissa. To say she is an amazing person would be an understatement. She puts herself last in every situation, simply to ensure everyone else is better off in some way. She is a strong, caring, and loving person! She is also an amazing mother. She has raised her kids to be wonderful people, just like her! I could go on for hours explaining the many ways my sister is beyond amazing. Recently we learned that she has breast cancer. The cancer has spread to her lymph nodes and into her ribs/spine. The news took us all by surprise. Even now, I sit in disbelief. I mean, she is only 35 years old! You never think it will be you or your family. Until it happens. Melissa's battle will be long and hard! But this is a fight I know she can win! We do not know how long her battle will be. But we do know her treatments will be extensive! With an extensive treatment comes an extensive bill! We also know she will be unable to work during her treatments. Being unable to work means no income, no insurance, no sick leave, and so on. Leaving her with a large amount of debt. Which will cause her additional stress that she doesn't need right now as she needs to be able to focus on getting better. That's where this GoFundMe campaign comes in. Everything that I am able to raise will go towards paying for Melissa's medical expenses and anything else she may need help paying for during this time. Things such as food and general bills. In the last few days, I have felt useless. All I want to do is help my sister. Help her get better. Yet I sit here unable to do anything to help. Please help me change that. Help me, help my sister. Anything is more than appreciated. For anyone that chooses to donate, I want to thank you in advance! You have no idea how much it means to me, to my family. We are all beyond grateful! Thank you!! Please share this anywhere and everywhere you can! Thank you again!!
