Sirsy is a band that doesn't quit. They play up to 300 shows a year. In 2017 they performed 218 times in 38 states, covering over 62,000 miles. After 7 years cancer free, Melanie recently had a routine MRI, which led to a biopsy, only to find out she has cancer again. Sirsy (Melanie and Rich), after advice from Melanie's doctor saying that this cannot wait, had to cancel their upcoming west coast tour and head back home for the first of her appointments this coming Thursday. Touring is Sirsy's livelihood and any hiatus for such a band isn't easy.

They broke the news to all of us today. Mel is one of the kindest, most generous people in the world. And friends of mine since 2001, I want to help give back just a small portion of what they've blessed us all with over the past 20+ years. If you know of Sirsy in any capacity, you know they never give up.
We love Mel and Rich and Mel is quite the fighter. We are hoping to help out to the best of our ability.  Hopefully, we can make things a little easier so that Mel can focus on getting better.

In the words of Sirsy:
"We learn to be an army
To keep from breaking with the day "

Hi friends! I wanted to check in and thank you all for everything you’ve done for Rich and me with this campaign and in general. You guys have completely eliminated one pillar of stress in this stressful journey. Thank you.

My surgery went well. Apparently I’m a major puker after being under anesthesia for so long. Phew. But I’m doing well with eating and trying to rest and do all my exercises and such.

I have a check up with my surgeon on Tuesday. The following week, I’ll see my oncologist and learn about chemo and such. Let’s hope I don’t need anything aggressive!

Love you all. Thank you for being here for me and for Rich! —Mel xoxo

Hi everyone. Thank you so much for your incredible generosity and kindness. It helps so much! I am trying to stay strong. Some days I do that better than others. But I’m trying. Still waiting to see the last doctor on my team (5/17 appointment) and going for more tests today. Love you all and I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done. Thank you. —Mel ♥️
