Lupus Vendors: mesameli

Meli is a graphic artist and jewelry designer.

She is a fearless woman.

Her courage grew on the most traumatic day of her life, July 4th, 1993. On that day Meli lost her husband, Russ, and her 12 year old son, Christopher, in a drowning accident. Meli had to go on to make the most heart wrenching decision that any parent could possibly be asked to do...
she had to decide to take her child, Chris, off of life support .

 Both Russ' and Chris's organs were donated and helped  over 200 people.

 Meli lives her life to honor her son. She went to college and pursued her dreams trying to live out the full life for her child. She carries Russ and Christopher in her heart everyday, and not a day goes by when she doesn't miss them.

Here is Meli's story in her own words: The Hardest Thing I Ever Did

Meli now has AAS degrees in Computer Art/Illustration, Web Page Design, Desktop Publishing, and Digital Imaging.

She has recently started to sell  her jewelry work.
