Together for Michelle

If you know Michelle or have had the pleasure of meeting her in person, you know that she lights up any room she walks into with her beauty, kind words, positive energy and comforting smile. She is usually the person you can go to for advice, encouragement and listening ear. Lifes challenges has never held her back from learning, growing and encouraging others to always stay strong. 2020 has been a crazy year for the whole world, however for Michelle, 2020 will be remembered for something else.

On October 19th Michelle was unexpectedly diagnosed with colon cancer. 

Due to the excruciating pains that she has been unfortunately experiencing over the course of this year from having H. pylori and diverticulitis , she was referred to get a colonoscopy done (typically not recommended until age 50 or older) and this is when doctors discovered a large tumor growing and delivered the life changing news. 

Michelle has quickly been scheduled to have surgery and will be undergoing the procedure to have the tumor and cancer removed on October 27 2020. This will result in her needing to be on bedrest during recovery for at least 3 weeks. 

Being that this new journey has arrived completely unexpected, all proceeds will be going towards Michelles medical/life expenses during this courageous battle she is approaching. Its time for us to come together for someone who has always given so much love and kindness to those she comes in contact with. 

We thank you for every donation, campaign share and comments of love and prayers. We will do our best to keep everyone posted on Michelles journey and her road to recovery!
