Staci's Melanoma Cancer Fund

My name is Brittani Smejkal. My mother was recently diagnosed with a very rare form of Melanoma cancer. Only 1% of people get this type of cancer. She has met with several doctors and decided that radiation and a new form of treatment known as immune therapy was her best chance at beating this. Although this type of treatment is new, it has been sucessful in a lot of cases. This is great news however, this medication is VERY expensive. Any money that is not used to pay for medication will be donated to Immune Therapy research. Please if you can donate anything at all it would be well appreciated.

My mom has been the biggest role model in my sister and I's life. She has been through so much and overcome so much.  She puts everyone before herself, it's now time we do something for her. I will be forever grateful for your donations and I know she will too. She is a strong and positive person and it would mean the world to me to continue to have her in my life. 

Thank you all so much!!
