Merelie needs our support!

My name is Lisa Holston and I have a very dear friend named Merelie Gerhard.  My friend Merelie is going through a very difficult time.  Merelie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 and now in 2015 has been diagnosed with metastatic bone cancer in her hip.  Having a cancer diagnosis handed to you once is devastating, but twice leaves you with no words. 

If you knew Merelie you would never imagine what she has going on, because she is always wearing a smile and along with her smile is her infectious laugh.  Merelie is an LPN and is in the business of helping others and making them feel comfortable. Her kindness and compassion are evident in everything she does.  She is a devoted mother, friend and huge Philadelphia sports fan.  She loves the Phillies, Flyers and Eagles. Merelie has spunk like no other.  For me, it is very hard to see my friend in this position.

Along with Merelie’s issues associated with the cancer in her hip, she also suffers from cervical spine pain which has afflicted her for a long time.  Her medical bills are mounting due to high deductibles and will only increase with this new diagnosis.  She has such a positive attitude, and we have all committed to helping her beat this disease a second time.  This is why we have undertaken the challenge to make things easier for her financially as best we can.  We would be grateful for your help as we support Merelie in her time of need.  Thanks again for your consideration.
