Help Melissa Fight Her Battle with Cancer

As most of you know by now, our friend Melissa Simpson has been diagnosed with two different types of cancer.  Several weeks ago she had a full hysterectomy which was required because she had a cyst on both ovaries (one big and one small), swollen lymph nodes and some abnormal bleeding. Her world was forever changed when she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Fallopian Tube Cancer that was found during surgery. This cancer is a rare type and there are not many facts known about it. The cancer has already been aggressive and spread to her lymph nodes, blood vessels in her pelvic, and abdomen. She will begin chemotherapy this week and will have treatment once a week for 18 weeks. 

Then a week later she found a lump in her breast that was not previously been there. After a mammogram, ultrasound, and biopsy she got the phone call no one wants to get, it was breast cancer. She is now face-to-face with two different cancers makes things more complicated.  Melissa said on her Facebook page, “God is calling me to be a fighter and to choose to be brave.”   

With all of the doctors appointments, treatments, missed days from work, and more; Dustin and Melissa are facing some very tough financial days ahead.  God has called us to love, pray, and support one another. Melissa is a wife, mom, daughter of Christ, and fighter!  

Please join us in supporting and praying for Melissa, Dustin, and the boys.
