support for Melissa


They say there are Angels among us on earth.  I know this to be true because Melissa Lannert is one of them.  Melissa is the most kind, loving, giving most of all selfless person I have ever met.  Always her first words would be what do you need and how can I help.  Now its our turn to show our love and appreciation of such an amazing woman.  Her family, friends and job responsibilities come first even during this extreme health battle, she still puts everyone before herself.
Three months ago in a heartbeat her world was turned upside down, she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia-Philadelphia Positive .  I know for me it took my breath away that within 24hrs of "not feeling well" to a Leukemia diagnosis.  Melissa is the strongest person I know and will never ask anyone for help.  There is always a smile on her face.  Her main goal now is to fight this disease and recover.  Her bone marrow transplant will be the week of August 13th.  Her amazing sister was a perfect match!
Let's work together to help remove some of the financial burden so Melissa can just concentrate on a full recovery.  Any donation will help but most important please keep Melissa and her family in your prayers.
She is truly the meaning of "Life is Beautiful"
