Help Melanie Beat Cancer

I’m raising funds for a young teenager whose aspirations are on hold because of her illness.   Please help Melanie beat cancer!

Melanie is an 8th grader from Sparta, New Jersey. She was my son's classmate until March 2017 when she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma -- bone cancer. Since then she has been out of school and is undergoing treatment which will be a long journey, physically, emotionally and financially. 

Melanie loves to dance and was a competitive dancer until her diagnosis.  I’m hoping that my friends and family members will help Melanie bounce back on her feet and dance her way to a healthy and successful life.  Please help Melanie’s family bear the cost of her treatment. No amount is too little! Every dollar will help.
