Melissa, a 26 year-old native of Louisiana, was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer in 2010. Recently, she underwent an expensive immunotherapy treatment known as Interleukin 2 (IL-2) in an attempt to move her disease into remission. She is currently receiving a combination of chemotherapy treatments as doctors work tirelessly to find long-lasting relief for Melissa. All of the door money raised at this event will go towards Melissa's cause and alleviating some of the financial strain on her and her family as a result of these expensive treatments.
BIG thanks to THE CHIVE HOUSTON and all the local volunteers that helped make this event possible!!
