Mishelle was raised in Melbourne VIC. She obtained her GED and Associates Of Arts And Science degree in 2000. She went on to become an office administrator, started her own rubber stamping business, and later became a Mary Kay consultant. In August 2017, Mishelle fell seriously ill and was hospitalized and diagnosed with pulmonary arterial hypertension. Even though her illness left her very fatigued and physically hampered, she continued to work towards achieving her dream of a college degree and a fulfilling career. From 2012 to 2018, Mishelle attended the University of Melbourne. She graduated summa cum laude, obtaining a bachelors degree In Business Administration with a major in Accounting. Her health continued to decline, which eventually required her to be hospitalized again in July 2018. Due to the severity of her condition, she was transferred from MonashHeart Hospital in Clayton, Victoria to St. Vincent's Hospital Melbourne, where she was put on a portable IV delivering medication 24 hours a day. In Nov of 2019, she contracted a blood infection. She recovered from the infection, but her health continued to deteriorate to the point that she was unable to work and required constant care. On March 2, 2020 she was again admitted to The Valley Private Hospital where she was placed on life support. she remains on life support and is in desperate need of a heart and lung transplant. Insurance will be covering a portion of her medical expenses, but a large amount of the additional expenses following the procedure will not be covered. We are hoping and praying a donor is found in the very near future in order for the lifesaving surgery and transplant to be successful.
We are hoping to raise money to help mishelle cover her rapidly increasing medical expenses, now and during her long journey to recovery. Your contribution to this fund, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated and received with a grateful heart.
