Melissa was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma cancer. She has a fighting chance but treatment is expensive and we need your help!

"Three words you never want to have to say, "I have cancer". Five weeks ago I started on a journey that brought me to where I'll be tomorrow - receiving my first chemo treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The love and support I've received from family and friends has been so overwhelming in the absolute best way. There are no words to thank you all and I'm not sure there ever will be. Tomorrow, this Irish girl is gonna start kicking some cancer ass." -written by Melissa Ellen Mcgurk on her facebook page on 10/17/12

Melissa is such a beautiful person. I am blessed to be able to call her my friend. When I heard the news I knew I had to do something to help. This is the 1st step but i can't do it alone. I'm hoping family, friends, and strangers can come together to help. If you have ever lost someone to cancer then you know the difficult times it can bring. This won't bring back previous cancer paitients but you can help save one so her family won't have to endure that pain.
