Malissa's Medical Fund

This is my beautiful niece who just turned 17. Two weeks ago she was rushed from the Sunshine Coast to BC Children's Hospital because they found a tumor the size of a fist in her brain.

Because of the urgency, she was scheduled the next day for a 8 hour surgery.  The surgeons were able to remove 95% of it but the last 5% of it was too deep in her brain.

Anaplastic Astrocytoma is a malignant Grade III tumor, which means it's fast-growing. Because of this, Malissa needs to start her year-long treatment of Chemotherapy and Radiation right away.

As you can imagine, this is devastating for our family.  Malissa's mother Lisa will have to take leave from work in order to be there to support Malissa while she is in Vancouver receiving her intensive treatment. They will need our support this year because of the many medication costs and travel/living expenses. Our goal is $12,000 because we are hoping to raise $1000 per month of care that Malissa will need.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We really appreciate any help from our friends and family at this time.
