Nurse battling cancer needs help

Meet Melissa. She is an amazing person. She is a wife, mother of four, and CVICU nurse. She's one of the most selfless, genuine people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing - and one of the best nurses I've ever worked with. I seriously doubt she's ever broken a rule in her entire life. She's dedicated herself to taking care of others, helping them get better and doing what's right.
Earlier this year, she was diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer. She's completed one round of chemotherapy followed by a lumpectomy. The biopsy results showed the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. Now, she is facing another more aggressive, more frequent round of chemotherapy followed by radiation. Her husband, Dennis, works but literally just had knee surgery and is currently at home recovering. She is unable to work until after her treatments. Chemotherapy, radiation, insurance premiums, Dr visits, medications - they're not cheap - and bills don't stop just because you're sick. They've used most of their resources getting through these past few months with the first round of chemotherapy. If there was ever someone worthy of helping, she is it. She would never ask for help, so I am asking for her. Every penny raised will go to her and her family to help them through this difficult time. Thank you for taking the time to read about Melissa - thoughts, prayers and sunshine are just as important as monetary donations ❤
