Dive Gear Benefit Auction
Jessica is 29 and lives in Muskegon, MI with her husband, Ryan, and two year old son Maddox. Last year Jessica was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive ovarian cancer. Experts at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX have determined an autologus stem cell transplant is the only treatment for long term survival. Insurance coverage was denied through two appeals on the bounds the treatment is experimental. Cost of the procedure is over $700,000. Family and friends are reaching out for financial support to allow Jessica to obtain this life saving procedure.
In conjunction, Lakeshore Scuba and Great Lakes Diver Locker, are facilitating a gear auction. Caring friends and neighbors have donated dive gear that is no longer used. 100% of the money taken in during the auction will benefit Jessica's treatment fund.
