The family and friends of Janelle Wells Gillespie are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against acute leukemia (M5). We want to support her by giving Janelle what we can ~ just one less worry and a ton of encouragement in her fight!

Janelle's Story:
In the 8th grade Janelle was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (pre-leukemia) when she was being tested to be a bone marrow donor to her sister, Chantell, that had already received that diagnosis and needed an immediate bone marrow transplant. At that time the symptoms were still a pre-leukemia.

Over the last seven years, Janelle graduated from SJO, started working at Carle, and married her love...Jack Gillespie this past May.

In mid-September Janelle began have terrible migranes and was admitted to the hospital in an attempt to get them under control. Through the testing they discovered that her pre-leukemia from years ago had become acute leukemia (M5).

A Benefit fund has been set up in Janelle's name on this site and at that Gifford State Bank.

Janelle will be 21 on December 21st, and we want to do everything we can to make sure that she has nothing to worry about. We need your prayers and support to make sure that Janelle gets the best medical treatment possible and to ensure that when she comes home...and she will be coming home that she still has her home to come home to.
