#Priddystrong Fighting Lymphoma

Donation protected

Greetings Family, Friends and Supporters,

 I hope this posting finds you in good health and spirit. I’d like to take a minute of your time to acquaint you with Mélanie (Silva) Priddy, a 30 year old, who lives in Loudon County, VA with her husband, Matt and their two children, Tyler, 7 and Olivia, 5. An easy going, lovable gal who has a warm bubbly personality that immediately draws you in. 

Recently, Mélanie was given some devastating news. Hearing the words nobody expects or wants to hear…. “You have cancer” A diagnosis of Non Hodgkin Lymphoma, Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma ALK-Negative (NHL ALCL ALK-Neg) followed. A diagnosis of a rare uncommon cancer that is most commonly detected in males over the age of 60, came as a complete shock to her.  Lymphoma is an aggressive type of cancer that attacks the lymph nodes and spreads quickly throughout the body.  Patients with ALK-negative disease have less than a 49 percent long-term disease-free survival rate. Some patients do not respond to therapy; for those patients, higher doses of chemotherapy are needed followed the possibility of a stem cell transplant. The therapies mentioned are often effective for helping many patients achieve remission. However, relapse occurs in up to 30-49 percent of patients with ALCL. Therefore, long-term follow-up care is required. 

Since being diagnosed, Mélanie has had regular weekly visits with her oncologist, undergone a series of medical test; such as blood tests, CAT/PET Scan, bone marrow extractions and surgery to ready her for the aggressive chemotherapy treatments she will have to endure. Through it all, she’s maintained an upbeat and positive attitude. She has a long road ahead of her, but with faith, the love of God, family and friends, she will beat this.

I ask for your prayers and consideration in helping her win this fight by supporting our campaign #PRIDDYSTRONG. All donations will assist Mélanie and her family in paying their expenses. Between gas, parking, lodging to get to and from medical appointments, it adds up fast. Not to mention the mounting medical bills that continue to keep rolling in.


Let’s help her win this fight! Support #PRIDDYSTRONG

God Bless!
