Fundraiser for Nancy Melendez

Hello Everyone.

For those of you who don't know Nancy - she is my sister who has special needs. 

She has always been super outgoing and friendly - loves talking to people and taking pictures.

For the last few years she has been dealing with what the doctors told us was eczema.   This last March she was finally diagnosed with stage 4 Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma. 

Over the last few months she has been undergoing chemo which made has made her really weak.  Then, about a month ago, she contracted MRSA through a port that was  put in for the chemo and had to be hospitalized.  Right after she was getting over that she caught pneumonia. 

Since then her health has been deteriorating rapidly and the doctors have told us that the treatment isn't working and that she does not have much longer. 

My mom, who has been her caretaker for her whole life, made the hard decision to put her in hospice, where she is right now and will remain until her final day.

We are asking for donations for her funeral / memorial arrangements, which is going to be very soon. 

Although we might not reach our goal, any donation is very much appreciated.

I will keep you all updated.

Thank you
