Knock out Cancer

$6,415 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 60 people in 11 months
Melissa Omeara is an amazing person with a beautiful  soul,   and we mustn’t let her leave us too soon. 44 years old with two wonderful  boys, who help her everyday to overcome this challenge 
                                                                                                                                                                                                  Melissa has fought cancer in the past and overcame it , but this time it came back undetected and grew to large  to perform surgery or use radiation , with chemo not effective against this sarcoma . The doctors at OHSU surmised that chemo or radiation wouldn’t shrink tumor enough to perform surgery , that these therapies would just give her more time and that there is no cure.

Her diagnosis in Febuaray 2018 with Myxoid lipo Sarcoma , resulting in  a very large tumor lodged in her pelvis wrapping around and thru the pelvis hole where the sciatic nerve pass thru causing her intense pain. The tumor was growing rapidly in February when Melissa started alternative treatment with results of slowing this beast down now showing , Melissa has less pain and has reduced  her pain meds , she’s getting out more often and has a great appetite.                                                                                                                                                           Melissa has noticed signs of shrinking in one area and our hope is that pictures will show shrinkage in all areas. Melissa  is due for pictures in two months.( Sept 20th ) 

The last six months of treatment cost $50000 
Won’t you please help Melissa raise another six months of treatment 
She has this monster on the ropes and needs continue treatment to knock It out.

Thanks to those who donated last week , Melissa was able to continue treatment for most of the week
To let people understand what she’s up against , treatments for just Hyperbaric therapy are $150 each session , since mid December she has been going in 5 days a week and the results have been great . Along with other treatments this will be a challenge to fund her recovery. There are other therapies still yet to implement when funds become available . Again thanks to so many wonderful people. Please share ❤️

Hello everyone , Melissa needs your help.
As many of you know Melissa has been fighting relentlessly for a year now to beat this rare and aggressive cancer , there has been many highs and lows this past year with tears and laughter.
Lately we have been blessed with very good news, we have notice a change in her condition for the better , with signs of tumor shrinkage and the tumor moving ( or shrinking ) off of the sciatic nerve , this is so welcoming news because of the amount of pain she had been experiencing over the last year of sciatica. We have been able to cut her pain meds by 80% and have many of you to thank.
Since the beginning of Dec. we have been able to start new treatment and double up on the treatment she had been receiving thanks to the benefit that was put on for Melissa, it was a big success and raised much needed funds to allow Melissa to continue treatment . The good news this time is overwhelming and so welcoming but her condition is still very serious and we need to keep the pressure on this monster of a tumor to keep shrinking it , unfortunately we have run out of money to continue her treatment. Please give what you can, no amount is to small. Please share this with all who can help Melissa with this difficult situation. Melissa needs your help more than ever to beat this.
Thank you

UPDATE ON MELISSA

But first we would like to thank all the folks who came out to support her at the benefit last month, it was a huge success . Thank you to all the amazing bands and musicians who gave their time and effort to make it a success. And a very special thanks to Brad and Kathleen, you are a god send. With a generous match from a wonderful person we raised just under 9 thousand , enough to help Melissa get treatment for about three months . Thank you Thank you.

Melissa has been fighting hard for almost a year now , her oncologist at OHSU didn’t think she would make it this far , to their surprise we slowed this fast growing aggressive tumor using alternative treatment , unfortunately the last scan has shown growth , again her Dr is surprised at such little growth , the problem is the tumor is pressing on the sciatic nerve causing extreme pain. I have never seen such strength that Melissa shows in dealing with this. We have decided to supplement her treatment with low dose Chemo , please say a prayer for Melissa so this poison doesn’t harm her more than that’s needed , a good sign that her body can handle this is her Dr said she is the healthiest oncologist patient he has ever seen , this would be a result of her alternative treatment and nutritional support and of course all the prayers you people have sent . Keep them coming and thank you from the bottom of our heart . Melissa and Michael

IV’s can be long but at least Melissa can sleep during treatment.
