Melissa's friends and family are coming together to raise noney to help her with this war against cancer.

This is for a friend who has been through the ringer and back. Last March she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She was having seizures so her mom brought her to the local ER and they did a scan. It came back showing a mid-sized tumor on the left frontal side of brain. Her Oncologist sent her to Shands in Gainsville for a biopsy and when it came back malignant he sent her back to have it removed. She was sent home the next day and a week later her Mom brought her back to the local ER cause she was so disoriented and out of it, that they sent her back to Shands for a week. She was told that she would need radiation, but when she got radiation. So she found another Oncologist who she really likes and she had her get another MRI at another facility in June. That report came back bad. It showed two larger tumors at the same site where the other one was removed and metastic lesions. She was put on 7 weeks of radiation. To top it all off, her Father passed away in March of 2012 and then her Mom passed on 8/5/2012 from complications from her COPD. Her Mom was unable to leave any life insurance because she herself was receiving SSDI. Melissa lived with her Mom and contnues to stay where they both lived together. Melissa receives SSI of $698.00, and that is it. She needs help with rent, medical co-pays, medication co-pays and utilities. She is a God loving person and knows that there has to be people helping people out there.
