Help Mel Lassen Fight Breast Cancer

During the holiday season of 2018, Melanie Lassen’s life changed dramatically, emotionally and financially. The results from her mammogram came back and she has been diagnosed with Invasive ductal carcinoma (Stage 3 ) also affecting the lymph nodes. Unfortunately, due to a history of breast cancer in her family ( her mother passed away due to breast cancer), the doctors wanted to start her treatment as soon as possible. She just had her 3rd session of chimotherapy ( 01/25/19) and she still has 3 more to go before she has double mastectomy and then radiation. Everything is happening faster than she could ever imagine including all her medical bills that are pilling up day after day once she found out she has breast cancer . She has medical insurance, however the deductible, copays, many visits to the doctors, exams, CT scans, MRIs, lost time from work has affected her immensely to a point that she can’t afford to pay alone.We believe that dealing with cancer has been too much for her to juggle by herself and we would like to ask for your help to relief some of her financial stress so she can focus on her treatment and fully recover. Melanie is a fighter, hard worker and she has told us that she won’t give up! She will beat this *f&($* Cancer.We will be forever grateful for helping Mel be a cancer free survivor. All donations will be much appreciated to cover lost time from work and overwhelming medical bills.
