Hope for Holly

I am doing this campaign for my friend, Holly Jacques, who is currently battling Primary Mediastinal B-Cell Lymphoma.  This is a form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.  Holly had been dealing with chest pains on and off for years, but the day before Thanksgiving the pain became unbearable.  She decided to go to the emergency room where they told her it was most likely just muscle strain, which she had been hearing since 2013.  November 30th, Holly had her first CAT scan and was informed just hours after of a mass in her chest most consistent with malignancy.  In shock and confused, she was soon informed on December 8th of her type of cancer. 

With careful research, Holly had planned to take a more holistic approach, using only natural and organic foods and other products.  This was quickly interrupted on December 28th with a life threatening blood clot in her neck.  Her only option was to start chemo that day.  Although she claims her first round was a breeze, another potentially fatal blood clot in her lungs turned a five day treatment into a 13 day hospital stay.  Overcoming these roadblocks, Holly is now battling her 6th and final round of chemo before remission.

Those of you who know Holly know that she has a heart of gold and is always trying to help others.  This time Holly is the one who needs the help and I know there have been many friends, family members, customers etc. who are asking what they can do.  With Holly unable to work either of her two jobs, these hospital bills and other unexpected expenses are quickly piling up.  Any donation would be appreciated beyond words.
