Help Melissa and Jaden

I have known Melissa and Jaden since I was a junior in high school... Melissa helped out with my high school youth group, Wyldfyre every Wednesday evening. The two things that stuck out most to me was Melissa's love for Jesus and her love for her only child, Jaden. The bond that Melissa and Jaden have is indescribable. Yesterday, Melissa recieved that most terrifying news she's ever received, her 11 yr old son Jaden has Osteosarcoma, which is a malignant bone cancer. A bone tumor was found on his left femur bone. This has all happened extremely fast. Melissa has already  fought so hard to get Jaden the medical care that he needs. Melissa is a single, working mother. Jaden is currently at Seattle Children's Hospital and will soon undergo chemo treatments.  Melissa will be staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Seattle, WA over the course of the next 10 months while her son receives the treatment he needs. Her employer is giving her 12weeks off of UNPAID time only. Since Melissa is a single mother, she depends on her income to survive. I am setting up this campaign to help alliviate the financial burden that she will be going through over the next 10 months. This money will help go towards her bills (mortgage, utilities, car, phone, gas etc.) so that she has one less thing to worry about and she can stay by Jaden's side as he fights this battle. Please pray for Melissa and Jaden and consider giving to this amazing mom and her son!
