Support Melissa Deforke

Everyone loves Mel. To know her is to love her. Many of you know Melissa from her time at Fringe Salon, or from her life in Austin and Houston Texas.
Mel is fighting the good fight against Stage 4 cancer. She and her girlfriend Joy will need lots of love and support in the near future to help Mel with her fight, and with her expenses.

You can keep up with Melissa’s health at

Thank you for your love and support!
