The Family of Jessica Gann is in desperate need of help to raise money for her medical treatments and travel cost due to stage 4 melanoma

Jessica is a wife and mother of two young daughters ages 9 & 13 yrs. Jessica was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma cancer in September 2011 at the young age of 39 and has been given less than a year to live and to her family this is unacceptable. Jess was a working mom until the nature of the cancer has disabled her and now can no longer continue her career as a dental assistant. With this news their family has been devastated. Jessica and her husband had just purchased their first family home last year and was looking forward to building many memories there. Now with the rising cost of treatments they are in fear of losing everything they have worked for. Jessica's husband is an industrial mechanic and travels for his work and has had to take a leave from his career to care for his wife and family and now are about to loose their insurance coverage and will be trying to pay for cobra insurance with no guarantee it will help cover the cost of her treatments. Jessica's treatments cannot be given to her where she lives in Colorado and needs to travel to Houston Texas every three weeks for chemotherapy, each treatment is at a cost of $100,000.00 and needs 4 to start. These treatments are new and were just approved by the FDA in August of 2011. The family has been trying to sell their possessions to help fund this themselves and with the help of co-workers and friends they had a benefit that raised $2,300.00 a small but helpful amount but not nearly enough and time is running out. This is a very aggressive cancer and has put Jessica in the fight for her life against a silent killer that is threatening to take her away from her family way too early in life. So please if you can find it in your heart any donation will help and is greatly appreciated. We humbly thank you in advance to help bring a miracle to a family in need of the generosity and kindness of others so from the friends and family of Jessica we thank you and God bless.
