Please help Heather fight, these funds will be used to help the family during her medical treatment. She is in a fight for her life.

A life interupted - Please open your eyes and your heart and help Heather Montgomery, loving wife of Kevin, mother of 3 young boys, Landon, Weston and Easton, win her battle with stage four Melanoma, she is in a fight for her life! Tennessee surgeons have referred her to Moffit Cancer Center in FL for treatment. (Update as of today, August 7th, Heather is out of the hospital for now, she will have some joyful time at home with her family and friends, then back to FL to have stitches removed on the 16th and readdress the lung tumor.  She has begun to get airflow in the lung that collapsed so the tumor must me shrinking, since it is unoperable, surgeons will see if they will be able to "seed" it to restore her lungs to health, her left side to continues to experience numbness, a side issue from the surgery, she has though developed shingles on that side, and is being treated for them, and in true Heather style she says "at least they are on the numb side"  ) Heather and Kevin are staying positive and close to their faith, even though Heather is considered terminal. They are amazing people to behold. Raising funds is the practical side of this rocky and trying journey they are on, they are physically weary, spiritually strong and with your help will be more fiancially stable. Heavy expenses are kicking in now, help is needed soon. Money raised will help with additional medical bills, travel, child care and other financial needs.  The site will close at the end of this month, it is hopeful we will reach or exceed our original goal, I have faith.  Serendipity has always been defined to me as seeking grace and receiving it, so wonderful to see it in full action, it is a vision of beauty. You hold the power to help within your hands, folded in prayer for spirtual healing, and with the click of a button to ease the financial burden. If you are viewing this, please take a moment and donate, large or small all donations, will make us as one and mighty is the multitude! Share her story with your friends, family and coworkers, you will be humbled by how much people truly want to help. "For it is in giving that we receive", please let your heart and good will be your guide. I have faith in people, we will not turn a blind eye, we will not say to bad, we will skip our Starbucks, our lunch out, a night at the movies and we will make a difference, we will never have to wonder if we really can make a difference in this world, because I stand before you now and tell you first person, you can, you can with a click, you can! This website stands on these 4 premises- 1. No one should have to face an illness alone. 2. Friends and family want to help. 3. Technology empowers. 4. With the right tools when can send unlimited love and financial help, so Heather can focus on becoming well instead of financial problems.

At the request of my sister, Heather's mother:

I want to thank everyone for their generosity. Without the help that is being provided through this fund raiser a huge family debt would be hanging over Heather and Kevin’s head in addition to the many troubled days and nights they are going through with treatment. I love each and every one of you. Barbara Staggs, Heather’s mom
