Michelle's fight began approx. 1 yr. ago due to a rare form of cancer "ACC" Adenoid cystic carcenoma. Thanks for prayers and donations

 Michelle's [Shelly's] journey began 26 years ago with unfailing faith and inspiration after she became the mother of James and Chris Pazzaglia overnight. The four and five year-old children tragically lost their mother, Georgia Marie Pazzaglia. Shelly stepped up to the challenge of raising the two boys. Shelly's faith continued to be tested when trying to conceive her first child. After 5 years of complications, Shelly successfully gave birth to a son, Eric. 13 years later, she was blessed with another son, Anthony.

 In December, 2011, after many months of toothaches, earaches, and headaches, Shelly's faith was tested again after a 14 hour surgery she endured to remove a tumor from within her face called adenoid cystic carcenoma. This nasty tumor was the cause of her complications, which seemed to appear overnight. She overcame many painful obstacles with the support of her loving family after the surgery. Unfortunately, a new ACC tumor, which only effects around 1,200 people a year, showed up before she was even fully recovered. On Sept. 5th Shelly is facing a 12 hour long surgery that will result in the loss of her eye and some medical costs that will not be covered by insurance. Shelly's husband is no longer able to work because he has taken on the responsibility of being her primary caregiver.  We as a family are asking for your support, any donations, and much needed prayer. Thank you and god bless.
