Please help me help my sister in her fight to beat colon cancer!

Two years ago you graciously helped my sister by giving when she needed the most. Well, it is with a humble heart that I ask for this help again.

Since the diagnosis of her colon cancer in 2010, Melissa has gone through 2 surgeries and 2 intensive rounds of chemo, her cancer spread to her ovaries and has now spread to the lymph nodes around her kidney and is impeding the function of one kidney. Now she faces yet another hurdle. She will have to have cytoreductive (debulking) surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), a very invasive surgery that will require 2 months out of work and will require her to travel to Maryland.

In the past 2 years Melissa has secured a permanent position at her company and has health insurance, but has not been with the company long enough to receive paid medical leave and not all of the medical procedures and medicine will covered by health insurance.

Times are tough for a lot of us, but if you can spare a couple bucks to help her out, we as a family would greatly appreciate it. We understand if you cannot give, so please know PRAYERS are appreciated just as much if not more.

If everyone on my friends list were able to give $1, I would be more than half way to my goal.

Thank you for your help. Thank you for your prayers.

God Bless.

Mark 11:23-26 “Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”
