#Mel-Strong - Fight Against Cancer

This account is for a precious 12 yr old little girl who brings joy and sunshine to whom ever she meets and knows. Loves volleyball, being a cheerleader, dance (which includes Jazz, Ballet, tap) dance competition and the color teal. Her name is Melanie Wheeler who last wk went to the ER 2 times with back pain. Finally the 2nd time there they did some testing and found a tumor. She was then sent to children's hospital in Columbus, Ohio. They did remove a very large tumor but unfortunately then was diagnosed with cancer in her spine and brain. There is no for sure treatment but will be started on 6 wks of radiation once her back is healed from the surgery. She is from Gallon, Ohio and very few hospitals in the US are even able to help her. As of right now She will be going to St. Louis, Missouri. The parents of this little angel need our help and support to be able to pay medical bills, have gas money, food, and many other financial issues that come along with these types of situations. Please give back for these ppl as they themselves have given so much to the community they live in from the mother coaching youth programs of cheerleading, High school coach, the father being a sponsor for these programs and so much more that would be impossible to list everything. They are very proud hard working ppl and would never want to ask for a thing, but without them even having to consider to ask, lets take care of that for them so all they have to do is focus and spend all their time where it needs to be and that is on Melanie!!! Thank you all in advance :)
