Sweet Melissa

32316100_153485382494969_r.jpegMelissa Marie Durham. She is a Mother of two children, a wife, a daughter, a sister, and aunt and a friend. Melissa was going to pick up her children from school yesterday (August 20th) when she suddenly fell ill, began vomiting blood and needed immediate medical attention. Melissa has been unresponsive and sedated while tests have been ran. In less than 24 hours her life has changed forever. Medical teams found Melissa to have cancer in the lungs, breasts and liver.
Life is so fragile. Life is so short. Melissa is 32 years old with a 10 year old son and almost 6 year old daughter. She loves with such passion and quietly observes what goes on around her and will extend her full heart out to others just to see them smile. She does this without expecting anything else in return or to be noticed as the giver. 
I am asking anyone who has taken the time to read this, to please give as much or as little as you can. You are giving to a Mother, to a friend, to a wife, to a daughter, to a dear aunt, to a beloved sister, to a woman who will do anything to see you smile and to a human who needs help. 
Funds that are made will be for the family costs needed for Medical needs, travel; as she is expected to be transferred for more intense care, and for her children and family as we do not know the extent that any of this will be. Her husband and family are doing what they can to surround her with support and love and this takes time from work. 
Thank you for your time reading this. If you are not in the position to give monetarily, I ask you please send love, light, prayers and positive vibes to this woman and her family. Please.
