Help Melissa Kick Cancer!

Melissa was just diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. She needs help with expenses for a treatment center in Arizona, along with everyday medical expenses and treatments. This puts expenses at well over $20,000, which is where we are setting our goal.

Melissa has spent over thirty years in early childhood education, taking care of generations of young children and supporting families. She is a widow and is retired, and now needs her community's support to get better.

She has taken care of my son since he was 9 months old, and is like a surrogate grandmother to him. I cannot bear the thought of her not recovering due to not having the money to get the help she needs. We now reach out to the good samaritans and benefactors out there who will support her recovery with their donations and generosity.

Please consider donating to help us reach our goal. Any amount helps!
