During the past two weeks, Melanie learned that the pain and sickness she has been battling was due to cancer. It has already been determined that the cancer has spread from her colon to her ovaries. On Monday, she will undergo surgery. After the surgery, the doctors will be able to give her a better idea of what the treatment will be going forward. As of now, it looks like she will need six months of chemotherapy.
Although she has medical insurance, there are still many treatment-related and everyday expenses that Melanie and her family are confronting. Working for a school where teachers do not receive pay over the summer combined with the inability to continue with her usual summer employment is an additional hurdle.
Melanie is always there to give her love and support to anyone in need. Now it’s our opportunity to return that love and support to her and her family. Anything you can donate will be truly appreciated. Please spread the word. Thank you
