Our beautiful friend Melia has recently been diagnosed with Bile Duct Cancer (Cholangiocarcinoma). Melia is a loving wife and mother of two, Taylor (11) and Hayes (9). In addition, she’s a loyal friend and leaves a positive imprint on everyone she knows, including her patients. She passionately helps to live healthier lives as a Physical Therapist. Words cannot express how shocking and devastating this is for Melia, her family and her friends, as this is a very rare cancer (less than 1% of all cancers). After multiple weeks of doctor appointments at various hospitals, Melia has begun her journey to fight this disease. She works with the best physicians and surgeons at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. In the next two months, she will have three surgeries that will tax her body and financial well-being. Melia is an absolute fighter and the strongest woman we know. She will beat this! These go fund me donations will continue to be utilized to tackle the mountain of medical bills they are incurring while beating this cancer. At this point, the expected out-of-pocket medical bill costs are supposed to be more than $200,000. Any amount helps. Please continue to keep Melia and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
