The family and friends of Chrissy Stevens are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against Ocular Melanoma. We need your help!

Chrissy is a single mother of 3 boys who was recently diagnosed with Ocular Choroidal Melanoma. She went into the eye doctor thinking she just needed glasses and was shocked when the doctor wanted to send her 3 hours away to Provo, UT to see a specialist. At first she was told is was just a blood clot. In Provo she got the news that it was something a lot more serious..... a tumor. The tumor is in her left eye and is very large and very scary. Of course this is not something she was wanting to hear. With 3 boys its hard to think that you might leave them too soon. Chrissy was devistated and didnt know where to go from here. Knowing she doesnt have insurance and is the sole provider for her family she was really upset and stressed. Not to mention mortified that she might not only lose her eye but that they arent sure if the cancer has spread to other parts of her body. Could you image how hard that must be? It breaks my heart to think of how scared and worried she must be. Every appointment needs to be in Provo so she is literally having to beg for money just to make it to them. She has already spent over $300 in the last week. She has a couple more appointments that she has to be to as well as having to take at least a week off of work to stay in the hospital for radiation therapy. They dont allow visitors while she is having radiation so her 3 boys will have to be taken care of while she is gone. Chrissy was already struggling to make ends meet before all of this and now its crucial that she gets some help. I love my sister and I will do ANYTHING for her! I will come clean your house, your car, your dog, mow your lawn, ANYTHING! Please look into your heart and give to her and her kids! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Update:
Since the last time I've updated this site Chrissy has gotten more bad news. The results from her CT scan and MRI showed that she has another tumor in her liver that is 7cm. Her cancer is a stage 4. They no longer are planning on treating the tumor in her eye because the tumor in her liver needs to be treated first. She will be meeting with another specialist, this time its a melanoma specialist, in Provo who wants to start some clinical trial medications because this type of melanoma does not respond well to chemotherapy. Chrissy will be traveling to Provo tomorrow(3/30) to get a biopsy of her liver to determine the next step of treatment. She also was denied for Medicaid which means she still does not have any insurance at all. The clinical trial treatments are all in Salt Lake so she will continue to have to travel on a regular basis. We are all staying very positive because you never know what will happen when she starts treatment. Please continue to show your support for Chrissy in this very scary battle. Thank you.
