McKelvey's fight against Melanoma

On September 11th, 2017 Andrea was diagnosed with Metastatic Melanoma Cancer. 

The last 6 months have been focused on targeted treatment that has worked on reducing the mass. This treatment has taken a toll on Andrea and she spends a lot of time resting due to fatigue. 

The latest treatment reccomended by our Oncologist and Melanoma specialist is to move to an aggresive Immumotherapy that will work with the immune system to fight the cancer but can be fairly toxic to the body. Its the immune system that will be working on overload and its possible that she will develop auto immune deficiencies. 

We've have started changing major parts of our lifestyle and sought alternative treatment options in conjunction with the immunotherapy. This includes eating an organic diet that is low in sugars and carbs. Essential oils, teas, and other treatments as well.  

Over the past 7 months Andrea has not worked and has been on short term and long term disability. The combination of treatment costs both conventional treatment through the doctors and the non conventional treatments (oils, diet, teas, etc.) have been very costly. All of our savings is depleted and we're living off of a reduced income due to Andrea being on disability. We could continue to use your support during this season of life. 

 All in all we trust God that he will provide and that he is in control. We are choosing to live in peace and joy during this chaotic time. 

Due to the fact that we (Sean & Andrea) work for The Navigators this go fund me fundrasier in not in connection with The Navigators. These needs are personal needs and you will not recieve a tax deduction for giving to this fund. We raise funds for The Navigators for our ministry and we want to communicate the difference.
