Fighting Cancer With Michelle Olson

On June 4, 2020, Michelle Olson received the unexpected and devastating news that she has Stage IV metastatic epithelioid Leiomyosarcoma.  This is an extremely rare soft tissue cancer, which has spread to her uterus, abdomen, bones and lungs. Due to the aggressive nature of this particular cancer, immediate intensive treatment will be required.

Michelle is 44 years old and lives in rural Viroqua with her significant other, Art Lander.  She is the daughter of Mike and Lorna Olson of rural Viroqua.  Michelle graduated from VHS in 1994 and currently works at Ridge to Rivers Animal Clinic, where she has lovingly cared for countless animals over the past 18 years.

Michelle has a passion for animals, especially dogs, cats, and horses.  Michelle enjoys spending time with family, especially her much adored niece and nephew. 

Your generous donations will help offset Michelle’s medical bills since she has no health insurance and is currently unable to work because of the risk of contracting Covid-19.

Michelle is a gentle soul and would never ask for help.  So we are asking everyone to help support Michelle in her fight against cancer!
