Mishele's Fight Against Lung Cancer

A few weeks ago, Mishele was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer (Pulmonary Adenocarcinoma) after sumbitting herself to the hospital due to experiencing a difficulty in breathing.  Mishele is a mother of two, a self-employed business woman, a lover of healthy foods and fitness, and most recently, ENGAGED!! We know that if anyone should be scared in this situation, it should probably be the cancer.  With the first round of chemo in the books, Mishele is holding up like a champ (but what else would we expect from a woman who's 53 and ran three Spartan races in the past year?)

While we understand this fight will not be an easy one, we find hope and strength in those around us, lifting us up when we need it most.

I refuse to be helpless in this fight, and while I can't personally attack the cancer myself, I CAN attack the financial burden that the cancer will cause for Mishele and her family.   Lessing the financial burden of these medical bills is the main goal for this campaign and one small way we can all help Mishele.  We currently don't know the exact amount needed or whats to come with her medical bills, but we know that we need to get started as soon as possible. Any amount of money, big or small, will be more appreciated than you could ever know.  I do understand that sometimes donating can be difficult due to your own financial situations.  If you are unable to monetarily lend a hand, I kindly ask that you simply share this post with your friends, family and coworkers.  Thank you so much for your support and your help in Mishele's fight.
