Kelly’s funeral &medical expenses

Kelly Blackman was an amazing caring giving woman. Mother of 3 wonderful children that she was constantly bragging about! Her husband is a traveling preacher and their love was like no other I have ever seen. In 2014 Kelly was working full time as a preschool teacher and going to school for her bachelors in counseling all while raising 3 kids in high school. She had a bad ear infection that would not go away. She went to the ER where after some tests she was diagnosed with a acute leukemia. She went through chemo and has spent months in and out of the hospital since her diagnosis. She had to quit her job and put a hold on school. In June 2015 she had a bone marrow transplant. Her health started to improve, she was cancer free and living her life again. In June 2017 her stem cells test came back cancer free again! In July 2017 she finally obtained her goal of getting her bachelors in counseling! In late July 2017 she was back in the hospital going through chemo again. Tuesday October 10th while in the hospital she went into a como. Her husband has been by her side for the last 3 months while she was in the hospital going through her chemo with no income. Kelly hasn’t been able to work since her diagnosis in 2014so her husband has been the only source of income. Her husband and 3 children need all the support they can get right now until they are able to get back on their feet. Please help them in anyway you can.
