Stephanie will beat cancer!

33498218_1538705311535953_r.jpegThe world as she knew it changed late September 2018 when my sister in law Stephanie went to the doctor for a swollen lymph node in her upper right leg. After weeks of testing and procedures, Stephanie was diagnosed with stage 4 malignant melanoma. Her battle with melanoma is back and has metastasized to her left lung. She is 31 years old, Married and a mother of 4 beautiful children (ages 12,10,19 month old TWINS) Stephanie is active, non smoker and otherwise healthy. 

This devastating news has left her family and friends heartbroken, and has left her husband Ryan with the unimaginable and overwhelming tasks of arranging care for their 4 children/19 month old twins, managing treatment schedules, and figuring out how to pay for it all.

They plan to fight this cancer aggressively, and will do whatever it takes to get Stephanie the best care in the country, with or without the support of their health insurance. But they need your help to make this possible. Please, give what you can to help this special family. The funds will go toward: medical expenses, travel expenses (if they need to travel for state-of-the-art treatments), and general day-to-day expenses that will become difficult to manage.

As you can imagine, her family are in a whirl of emotions, but we want nothing more than to get Stephanie healthy to see her 4 beautiful children grow up.

Stephanie battled melanoma in 2011 and is ready to battle it again. She is asking everyone to please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers. She is having surgery on Wednesday to remove the lesion off her lung and will be in recovery for several weeks/months  cancer treatment to follow for a year. Stephanie is self employed and going to have to take a significant amount of time off of work.

I have made a GoFundMe to help this beautiful family. If you can donate, that would mean the world, please keep her in your prayers and share her story.❤
