The friends of Melinda Armold are uniting to help raise money to help with her battle against ovarian cancer. Please show your support!

I want to tell you about my best friend Melinda.

Melinda was born on July 5,1980 - and grew up in the midwest. Believe it or not we met in a bar when I was on a blind date with a guy - we became best friends instantly and have been freinds ever since. She is the most funny, positive, hardworking person that I know! She is also an amazing single mommy to her 3 year old daughter Lily!

Melinda was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in June 2008. Since then she has undergone multiple surgeries and four rounds of chemo including clinical trials. Through all of this she has managed to maintain her job at USAA and raise her daughter without any financial help.

Melinda is currently on a chemo trial as her cancer is now in her bowels and her liver. The chemo has many side affects as most chemos do - she is very tired, naseous, and has had to have several rounds of liquid drained from her belly.

Every aspect of this ovarian cancer is costly. Not only financially - but mentally and emotionally. We want to provide Melinda with financial help. This includes donations for money to go towards her medical bills, groceries, house cleaner, care for Lily etc.. My goal is to ease the financial stress Melinda feels - and let her focus on healing and getting better.

All donations are extremely appreciated.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
