Help Melissa on her journey against breast cancer

In March of 2019 our beautiful Melissa was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, which her specific type only appears in about 10% of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.  For the next five months she will be receiving weekly chemo treatments of TCHP; Taxotere, Carboplatin, Herceptin, and Perjeta. This type of treatment has already shown to have an exhausting and painful affect on her body.  After Chemo, she will proceed to have surgery, then radiation and surgery again and then continue with further treatment which is estimated to take a little over a year. 
Melissa is an Office Manager in one of the local charter schools in the valley. She is known by students, faculty, family and friends as a cheerful outgoing Women who is encouraging, shows love to all and is not afraid to share her faith in Christ. When I asked my wife(Melissa) what should I write when creating the gofundme page, she said, "this is just another season in our life, another Journey that the Lord will take us through". Our Family is very grateful for any contributions given, but most of all we ask that you pray with us for her healing and strength in the name of "Jesus". 
(Mark 5:34) And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."
