Her name is Melissa. She's 11 years old and one of the sweetest girls I have ever known. When she was 9 she lost an ovary to a growth that was never biopsied. At 11 she has had a complete hysterectomy, ongoing chemo, and still the cancer grows and spreads.
Today we found out that her only hope of a little more time is more surgery and more and more chemo - but even with this, her prognosis is neither good, nor long. She has a wonderful attitude and remains a bright light to all who know her. She is my hero. She needs as much good energy that she can get - as well as her family.
I know I can count on you to send that energy to her, and I thank you all very much for that.
