Christine Cooley's Medical Fund

My name is Shelly Michals, I have a friend Christine Cooley that needs our help and whether it be a big donation or small donation every penny helps!

For those of you that know Chris she is an amazing woman, hard worker that would never ask for help herself.   Chris and I met as she is my Massage Therapist. She also owns Chris’ Café in Osawatomie which she runs with her son and his wife.  Chris is a mother of 4 (3 sons and 1 daughter).  She is a single mother that is trying to help her daughter through college at this time.  Chris has spent years fixing my aches and pains when I needed her help so the least I can do is help her while her heart is hurting and she is struggling herself.
Chris was diagnosed on February 12, 2015 with Stage 4 Multi cellular Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This is a curable cancer, however, the Dr. has ordered her off work for at least 3 months as she gets treatment to win this battle!  This will leave Chris with no income as her main source of income is massage therapy (I might add she is amazing).  I am asking for help because I know she never would.  I know just having this financial relief will let her focus on herself and healing.  Please do what you can whether it be big or small every penny helps!
