Melissa was recently diagnosed with stage two breast cancer. At the very young age of 21, she is going through the ultimate fight for her life.
A kind and bright soul, Melissa hopes to finish her undergraduate degree in early-childhood education, and join a local Houston school supporting their special needs students.
Her family and friends have always recognized her desire to do good in the world, and the strenght that Melissa has already shown through this awful diagnosis is an example of how determined she is to make that happen.
