Friends of Melissa Griffith are uniting to raise money to help fund medical expenses during her battle against endometriosis-please join in!

Dear Family and Friends,

Our good friend Melissa Griffith has had one hard knock after another and she and her husband, Brandon, are in dire need of our help. Supporting themselves on one income and no medical insurance coverage for Melissa, they are faced with mounting and crippling medical bills.

Melissa has already struggled through and overcome stage-four endometriosis, but has now been diagnosed with a second, incredibly rare case of endometriosis that is baffling doctors and is going to require major surgery and other medical procedures. Currently unable to work due to her medical conditions and unable to receive medical insurance as her endometriosis is a pre-exisiting condition, Melissa and Brandon are now faced with impossible and debilitating medical expenses.

Medical expenses yet to be covered:
- consultation with general surgeon
- ct scan of abdomen and pelvis with contrast
- laparotomy (full-incision abdominal surgery)

Total estimated costs (based on Melissa's previous laparotomy in 2007): ~$27,500

They need our love, support and, if possible, financial help - please help where you can, anything will be appreciated.
