About our Honoree: Melissa Oister was born and raised in Stowe, PA. She enjoys spending time with her family, who still live in her childhood home. Missy has a tight knit family. They are dedicated to Missy and have been instrumental in helping her fight her battle with cancer – Missy’s family has been there every step of the way.
Missy was diagnosed on April 10, 2010 with Stage IV cancer, at age 29. She went through 6 months of chemotherapy and had a double mastectomy and reconstruction later that same year. Her cancer has traveled from lung to bone to liver and to her brain. She has been fighting her cancer since her initial diagnosis in 2010, with a new diagnosis every six to seven months. After radiation treatment in 2012, she opted to have a full hysterectomy in 2013 to slow the progress of her cancer, which thrives on hormones (HER2 positive). In 2014, her doctors discovered 3 tumors on her brain which were treated with gamma radiation. Earlier this year, Melissa had another recurrence of brain cancer. At the time, a body scan also revealed evidence of the disease on her lung and liver.
Missy’s cancer is persistent, but she continues to fight every day, with her family and friends by her side. Join us at the Wings of Hope 1st Annual Basket Raffle to help this courageous woman in her battle against cancer.
