Melanoma Facial Surgery

Stephanie Reitzenstein (my mother) was diagnosed with Melanoma (Melanoma is the most serious and lealthal form of skin cancer) on her face and nose last month. She had undergone a large Mohs procedure last month along with chemotherapy and we had hoped this was the end of her cancer story.

We found out yesterday (9/6/2017) that she will require multiple disfiguring facial surgical interventions to save her life. She needs to have this procedure immediatly and the facial reconstructive surgery required IS NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE.  

Every dollar counts, so please, if you have anything to spare help us.
