MEET MELISSA HAUGH

Melissa was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and has been nominated for a My Happy Haven bedroom makeover. Melissa is from Easton, MN and unfortunately, there is no MHH chapter in that area. Because of this, the room will be done by another My Happy Haven chapter, but the $3500 will need to be raised in her community. Often, we wonder how we can help when a loved one is going through a tough time. This provides an excellent opportunity for friends, family and businesses to rally together to raise the funding to make this happen for Melissa. Please share this link and give Melissa this gift of a lifetime!

MEET CHANTEL STUART

My name is Chantel Stuart, I’m 38 years old and I have been battling cancer since March 27, 2017. My symptoms came on like a freight train and within 2 weeks I was at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and I was diagnosed with Cervical Adenocarcinoma stage 2B. The second day I was there I went in for exploratory surgery to determine the extent of the cancer. My team of doctors developed a treatment plan within the next few days and I began treatment the week after. At my last check up at Mayo I was told if my current chemotherapy stops working they weren’t really sure they had anything else to offer me. It was incredibly disheartening and I felt like I was being given up on. It’s been a few weeks since my last appointment and I am currently waiting to be seen at MD Anderson in Texas for a second opinion. I am hopeful that my miracle is still out there.

MEET JAYNE FORD

Following a colonoscopy on February 1st, 2022 the doctor told my husband and I that he found a tumor in my colon. I was 37 years old. I had been having symptoms on and off for one year. In the coming weeks I had many tests at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. After I met with an oncologist I was told the cancer had spread through the wall of the colon and to multiple lymph nodes. Following radiation I had my first surgery on July 5th to remove the tumor and place an ileostomy bag. I will be returning to work at Mayo Clinic Heart Center in Mankato where I perform echocardiograms. I would also like to thank My Happy Haven for giving me the opportunity to spread awareness to colorectal cancer and giving me a beautiful room to rest and recuperate after surgery. I am forever grateful!

MEET ABBY BURCHLAND

Tests revealed that cancer had eaten the bone, and thus leading us to a Ewing’s Sarcoma diagnosis. She has completed 36 radiation treatments, and 10 out of 14 chemotherapy rounds. Despite this all, Abby continues to fight this awful disease with a smile upon her face! She is our hero:)

MEET CAITLYN PATRIE

Diagnosed with Stage 3 triple negative breast cancer, having a newly redecorated bedroom with a new, comfy bed and beautiful surroundings, would uplift Caitlyn and provide a haven to heal in.  Your donation will help us provide that.
