Kelly's fight

Kelly Marre is loved by many in and we are asking those who care about her to unite and support her though her battle against Acute Myelgenous Leukemia. She was on a spontaneous road trip to Coeur d'Alene because she had always wanted to see Idaho. After having increasing symptoms of anemia- hard to breathe, heart racing, and extreme fatigue, she ended up in the local ER. There she recieved the news that she shares a very similar cancer which took her eldest son, Logan Marre, in 1998. His battle was against acute lymphocytic leukemia. After losing her 11 year old son on October 24, 1998, she has given her heart and soul to fundraising towards cancer. She has literally raised thousands for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in hopes to find a cure for cancer. On multiple occasions has fundraised for the Ronald McDonald House, and supports many other charities including the United Way of Wasilla where she currently holds the position of Board President. However; none is more dear to her heart than helping children with cancer

She works for the State of Alaska and her co-workers are generously donating leave to keep her on the payroll so she can pay her normal bills and keep her Health insurance. She's going to be fine, but six months paying for rent and food for out of state will be tough. Her husband is fortunate enough to work for the same company he worked for when their son Logan was being treated for leukemia. They are allowing him to frequently fly back and forth. Her parents , her other two children, their spouses, and her grandchild will also be frequently flying back and forth. We appreciate your support of the Marre family.
