Miles of smiles for Melissa!

A mother, a veteran, a sister, a daughter, a friend! She is more than ALS!

I really would like to celebrate my 38 year old friend Melissa and her 2 beautiful children, AJ (15) and Lauren (10). Melissa is a veteran and was diagnosed with ALS almost 3 years ago. Her children are her life and their positive attitudes keep Melissa fighting everyday. Melissa's mother, father, step parents and siblings have been helping to take care of her and they also deserve in on this celebration!

I would do anything to take this illness away from her. I know that I can't do that so I'll do anything to make her smile and allow her to forget about this disease, even if it's only a few minutes!

A facebook page was created for her which is Miles for Melissa.

Thank you!
