Medical Bills

Lisa Melo has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. Lisa's family and I would like to start this fundraiser to help relieve the stress of her medical bills. Lisa is 48 and is married and has four boys. For over a year she has had problems with her health but not having insurance, until a year ago (last November), she was not able to see a doctor. She also has a thyroid problem that has recently become more severe and without the proper care it has created many other problems. Before the breast cancer diagnosis, Lisa was scheduled for 2 other surgeries, due to many other complications, that will have to be put on hold until her treatments have all been completed.  A  mamogram was requested and the result of that test showed agressive breast cancer. She has had to see a team of doctors at Fort Sanders in Knoxville TN and will be having surgery August 21 for a double mastectomy. When she heard this devastating news, she realized the expense involved was much greater than what was covered by her insurance. She has been a preschool teacher for over 25 years and is heart broken because she cannot work during this time and has to leave the children she loves. Her insurance deductiable is $3500 for the year ending and restarting again in Novemeber. The deductiable alone is a grand total of $7,000 this year not to mentioned any other medical bills that will start to pile in. Lisa really needs our help. If anyone could help with any amount, it will be much appreciated. GOD BLESS.
