Resting place for Melissa

Melissa Bell was a mother of three beautiful children. Zoey, Aidan and Savannah. Melissa was diagnosed with stage four bladder cancer in May of 2021. Melissa fought her battle with cancer from day one with aggressive chemo only to be told there was nothing else they can do. She then got a second opinion and was told she was misdiagnosed and that her cancer was cervical. She then endured another aggressive round of chemo and radiation with countless visits to the ER. 

 Melissa took her last breath in our mother’s arms on Sunday, September 25, 2022 at 10:55 am. This is a devastating loss to our whole family. Her children have asked to have a place they can visit their mom. We are trying to raise enough money to give my beautiful sister and her children a resting place to call their own. 

 Melissa loved being a mother, her three kids were her #1 priority. Melissa was fun, loud and always smiling. She spoke her mind and always had a way of making us all laugh.
While we are all struggling to come to terms with what has happened, words can not
 express the tremendous loss and sadness our family is going through at this moment. 
This is a very hard time and if you have the means to support her family through this unbearable loss, please do so. All donations will go directly to cover expense for her funeral/cremation and the remaining amount will go towards her three children.
