Throughout her life Melissa has been a positive light to so many people who have met her, and consistently gives her time, resources, energy, love, and friendship to those around her. When she first learned of her diagnosis, so many people from the many communities she's a member of asked what they could do and volunteered to help out. Over and over, the consistent sentiment was that Melissa is such a wonderful person and does so much for others, and she deserves as much help as we can give her.
Because she has been told by doctors the recovery period for surgery should last about 4-6 weeks, she will potentially be out of work during that time. Melissa cuts hair for a living and has many loyal, longtime customers, but she is self-employed and doesn't have the security of a larger company with sick time benefits. She will have continuing medical costs in the upcoming months for prescriptions, doctor visits, and other health-based expenses resulting from her diagnosis and surgery, as well as the cost of basic living. Because of this, we're hoping to raise funds to offset these costs and circumstances, and let Melissa focus on her recovery 100%. Any small amount our donors are able to contribute is so gratefully appreciated, and will give her peace of mind during what could otherwise be a very stressful time.
