Help Melanie Beat Cancer

$5,020 of $18,000 goal

Raised by 60 people in 17 months
It saddens me so much to have to type this. My best friend in the world, Melanie Hartley, was diagnosed with Cancer on January 21st. She is 33 and has a very aggressive Lymphoma, Mediastinal large B-cell lymphoma (MLBCL) to be exact. While Lymphoma is a fairly common type of cancer, the type she has within that spectrum of “common” is a rare type of aggressive non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. She has a large tumor growing around her heart and lungs.

Melanie has began her aggressive Chemo treatment which consists of staying at Yale New Haven for 5 straight days every 16 days, for months, and she will need a lot of financial support for her family.

Melanie had to close her home daycare due to Doctors orders which was devistating to her. The chemotherapy she is on will suppress her immune system, therefore, she is not able to care for children who may spread germs and cause delay in treatment. This has taken a huge financial toll on the Hartley family and anything you can donate will be put to good use and appreciated greatly. While it is extremely hard for Justin and Melanie to accept the help, please consider donating to help them endure the high costs of treatment, medical bills, house bills and gas back and forth to Yale. If you do not want to contribute through GoFundMe, and would like to send them a check or a gift card please do so to 27 Kingswood Dr, North Stonington, CT 06359.

If you are unable to donate at this time, please lift them up in prayer, send the positive vibes, and keep them all in your thoughts! This is one of the toughest obstacles a family could have.

Lastly, If you have any questions please feel free to reach out!

Thank you for all of your love and support!

Melanie has made it through 2 of her 6 cycles of chemo and is staying brave, positive, strong and has been an inspiration to many while on this journey. She's been a great patient for her amazing team of doctors and she has very little to complain about.

The Hartley family is very appreciative of all the donations they have received. The outpouring gifts of money, gift cards, meals, groceries, snacks, flowers, plants, essential oils, cards, phone calls, emails and prayers is amazing and there are no words that could possibly express how grateful Melanie and Justin are to have such a great support system in all of you.

**Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so generous to my best friend, my ride or die, my soul sister. It is so nice to know she is so loved by many. Feel free to share her link.

Thank you so much to all who have helped support Melanie and her family. She is very humbled by all of the support. If you are not comfortable with donating through her go fund me, please feel free to send her a card, check or gift card to her home address. Melanie will likely be out of work until September so they could use all the help they can get. As always, prayers and good vibes sent their way are greatly appreciated too!

***Gas cards, Dunkin Donuts, Grocery Store and CVS are good cards to gift.
