Melissa's Fight

Melissa's battle with cancer began in 2011, after being cancer free for 6 years her battle begins again.  
      The cancer first appeared in 2011 resulting in a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. By 2012, she was in remission. 
Last summer she experienced a slight swelling in her right eye.  Sadly they have found 3 "giant" tumors in her head.  These tumors are growing aggressively. Her surgery was set up for this Friday however, the doctors in El Paso feel that this surgery is too risky to take on.  Two days before surgery they apologized and told her this case was out of their hands.  MD Anderson was a great success for her last cancer treatment. In a last effort to save her life, we are taking her case to MD Anderson.  With their expertise and knowledge, and with God's help, we are hoping for a successful outcome.  However, there is no telling how long her treatment will take and how long she will have to be there.  
      Friends and family, we are asking for your financial support to help Melissa during this difficult journey.

For our Sister, daughter and friend.
