This is the Melva Parsons cancer fund. The funds will be used for funeral and related medical expenses. Please show your support.

She does not have life insurance. Please help offset/assist with funeral and living expenses to alleviate the financial burden. This will help her focus on fighting the fight of her life!
My mother Melva Parsons went to the hospital after dropping a lid on her leg, only to find out that she had blood clots in her leg and one detached into the lung. After future testing and biopsy’s they said “It is cancer.”
After the lung biopsy she had a liver biopsy, while awaiting the results she found out more bad news. She had gallstones that lodged in the duct and the bile could not pass, she was jaundice and full of infection. The doctors performed surgery to remove the gallbladder, but it was not successful. She now has to wear a permanent drainage bag connected to a tube in her stomach. The doctors say that the cancer is an aggressive cancer, and it is invasive. She also learned that she is not a candidate for treatments to fight the cancer, that she is terminal.
Melva is a strong woman. If you know her, you know she is a wonderful and deserving lady! She is independent, smart, funny, and tough as nails. Melva is a mother, widow, grandmother and great-grandmother..
This is why your help is needed:
Melva does not have life insurance. In 1993 she became a widow, she lost her husband of 36 years to cancer and currently, she is living off her social security and small retirement. This makes it very difficult to pay for daily living. We are raising money to offset and to assist with these expenses. Our hope is that we alleviate that financial burden so Melva can concentrate on getting better.
Thanks to those who have helped- with your contributions thus far. I can’t thank you enough.
All your generous contributions are deeply appreciated- anything you can give will help!
Go Team Melva!
THANK YOU - Sherry Parsons, Kimberly Taylor
