Help Michelle fight LYMPHOMA AGAIN!

Created June 15, 2017

Michelle (or Mich, as most of us call her) is married to her loving husband Francis of 9 years and is the mother to their beautiful miracle daughter, Claire, who is now 3 years-old. They currently reside in Parsippany New Jersey and are members of TLCC. (Francis can often be seen on stage playing the guitar during Sunday services)

Mich has been sick on and off since 2009. Due to the rarity and complicated characteristics of her disease, she has been having flare-ups almost every year and her doctors thought she had a rare Autoimmune Disorder. She was being treated with high doses of Prednisone for 8 long years due to different inflammations going on in her organs. At one point she was considered to be in "remission".

January 2017, she started having multiple tender skin lesions, high fevers and other symptoms similar from 2009. Her oncologist sent her to Mayo Clinic in Florida to get properly diagnosed. At Mayo Clinic, she was officially diagnosed with a very rare Lymphoma; Subcutaneous Panniculitis like T-Cell Lymphoma or SPTCL. at which time, it became aggressive. On top of this diagnosis, she was diagnosed with another disease; HLH or Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, which is a life-threatening immunodeficiency.

Mich and Francis came back to NJ from the Mayo Clinic for treatment and began her first chemotherapy treatment on June 13, 2017. Mich will undergo 6 sessions of chemotherapy and a STEM Cell transplant.

Since the onset of her illness, they have suffered many hardships and tragedies through their tough journey. Mich tragically lost 5 pregnancies during this ordeal before her daughter Claire was born. Claire is truly a miracle. Medical bills are piling up quickly and unfortunately their Health Insurance doesn't fully cover the services​ and medications that she now requires.

Please please consider helping us in raising money for Michelle's treatment. Any amount you can see it in your hearts to give will benefit their lives in ways you cannot imagine. Thank you for your love and generosity and God bless you!

32 Days Old!

I didn't realize I am already a month old!

And the best first month gift after transplant is given by my dear friends today.

Overwhelming love from Parsippany Moms Club-East and their families!

They came to my house to surprise me and my family with Christmas carols, cheers and gifts! What more can I ask for this Christmas with all these people supporting me in this journey!

They are very thoughtful and so considerate that all of them kept there distance because they are very concern about me catching any germs or viruses.

I would love to give each one my biggest hug if I can. In time, I definitely will! :) I could not thank them enough for this sweet gesture to cheer me up and bring the spirit of Christmas to us!

Life is beautiful and I'm very grateful to these families!

God bless you all!
