Magnificent Melissa

A page to raise a little money to go towards Melissa flying back to us once she's feeling better - and if she chooses not to use it for flights, then for her medication, for a sky-dive, for a nice bottle of wine. Whatever she needs, whenever she may need it.

Our beloved little firecracker has been dampened by evil cancer, but she's fighting back, being so fucking strong and still somehow taking care of all of us and making us laugh as we each breakdown in our own weird ways.

She might be heading back to Ireland for a while, so obviously a party is in order - a chance to meet her hilarious family and pour some love all over them too. It's happening Wednesday January 31st at the Wicklow! 

For now, just wanted to share how grateful I am to know her, and to know all you lot through her. She is a force of nature - you can feel it when you're near her. She's a ridiculously bright light filling any room she's in. She's not scared, and neither should we be.  

With love and determination! <3
