The friends and family of Vanessa are uniting to raise money to help her with her battle against Hodgkin's disease.

In 2008 Vanessa found out she had stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma (Hodgkin's Disease). She went through 6 months of chemo therapy and at the end was cleared of cancer. She had a PET scan every 6 months and a CT scan every 3 months up until She got pregnant in August of 2010. It was a surprise to her because the Doctors told her she couldn't have anymore children due to the Chemo. She was unable to have any scans while she was pregnant so she didn't have another one until June, 14th 2011. She went back for her results 3 days later and was told the cancer was back and it was all over her body. She will be starting chemo therapy soon and needs everyone's support.

Vanessa has a 7 year old named Kayla and a new born named Ryanna. She is unable to work due to the frequency of treatments needed to fight this. This battle is draining physically, emotionally, mentally and financially. The funds donated will be used for medical costs and related expenses. All donations and support are greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this story.
