To DJD fight on foundation,

First of all, I want to THANK YOU all from the bottom of my heart. With this it has made me have faith that there is still so many wonderful and caring people still out there.

Just a little bit of information about me. I am 32 years old. I have my husband by my side, a 6 and 7 year old wonderful step sons and my 6 month old baby girl.

Like a lot of people, I had lost my job in 2013. Things were rough but with a family of four we were able to get by. In the following weeks things had gotten a lot more stressful and joyful all at once. In May, I had found out that I was pregnant with my first child. Scary as it was without a job, I began to notice some differences that did not come with being pregnant. So after weeks of difference testing, On August 2013 I was diagnosed with Nodular Sclerosis Hodgkin Lymphoma Cancer.

Besides my husband and I our families were all equally terrified for me and my unborn child. The very next week with the very close watch of many brilliant and caring doctors at Hershey Pa, I received a MRI for staging and my vein saver the power port. In September 2013, we started chemotherapy. We had decided that to have a healthy baby we had to have a healthy mommy. After close attention we finished up 4 cycles of ABVD on December 26, 2013 at 34 weeks pregnant.

All of the doctors and the decision of my husband and I, we had decided to induce labor at 37 weeks to make sure that we would have a happy and healthy baby girl with all working organs. So in January Miss Alayna Hope was born. She was and is perfect with all working organs. She filled our hearts with joy but with still being jobless we were filled with more worries.

After recovering, my doctors decided for my health I need to continue treatment with 12 rounds of radiation. I finished April 2014. Right in the middle of my treatments, my insurance which I had because of being pregnant dropped me. It was very rough trying to find a job but to also try to find one that would understand what I needed to go through.

Bill collectors don’t want to hear financially and medically we didn’t have their money so bills are piled up and with only receiving one paycheck to try to support all of us was very stressful on my husband. Through all of this, he has been my rock but with this donation, we can finally catch up on our roof over our heads and vehicle so we do not lose them.

So I want to THANK all of you again for opening your hearts and helping out our family. Every little bit helps and I wish I was able to meet all of you to see just how loving and caring you all are for someone you have never met.

Just little updates. As of July 17th, I have insurance, a job that I help people live in every day activities and my doctor said that I can safely say REMISSION!!!!!!

Thank You All
Melissa and family



I'm writing this to you, because I am so happy to know there are people as special as you out there to help. I'm going to keep fighting this to my last breath and the money you sent me is going to be used for my expenses. I appreciate it so much, and if I could meet you I would show you how much I appreciate this. It's more than my words can express. I love you all, you are my guardian angels here on earth.

Thank you so much,
Holly Cromley



Dear DJD Fight On Foundation,

I can't begin to thank you enough for the very generous check that my niece, Cheryl Fuss, presented to me the other Saturday night. Needless to say it made me cry (happy tears for a change). It came at a perfect time. It was a very difficult week for me emotionally- just worrying about everything (including finances). Also July 1st starts a new year with my insurance- therefore a new deductible.

Your foundation is very generous and caring. I can only hope that someday I'll be able to give back in someway. Keep up the good work! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Sincerely,
Debbie Wagner
