Zumbathon for Melissa
I had the pleasure of meeting little Melissa Ledesma and her family at a Cubs vs Dodgers baseball game on June 22, 2015. I noticed the family had matching pink shirts and was curious to hear their story. What I was told left me heart broken, but motivated and inspired to help and make a difference in this beautiful little girl and her family's lives...
4 year old Melissa had been diagnosed with Stage 3 Brain Cancer.Her family has been doing everything possible to keep Melissa a healthy, happy and beautiful young girl. I was encouraged by their positivity, warmed by their love and inspired by their courage.
I had the privledge of co-hosting Melissa's Zumbathon later that month and have kept in touch with the family ever since.
