My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge website, created it to keep friends and family updated about Kelly Meloney. For those of you would like to help her with the massive medical bills her treatment requires, a fund has been established in her name.  Donations are being accepted through The Kelly Meloney Fund c/o Mundelein Community Bank, 1110 W. Maple Avenue, Mundelein, IL 60060  Attn: Isela Rios

Please sign the guestbook too!  

PLEASE NOTE:Donations made as tributes through the Caring Bridge site do NOT go to Kelly's fund but instead benefit the people at Caring Bridge.

 

 

 



On February 17th, Kelly Meloney was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Cholangiocarcinoma (cancer of the bile duct.)  Those of you who know her personally are aware of what a vibrant, caring person she is.  She is filled with laughter, love, and life and gladly shares all of that with those around her. She has touched so many people in her 26 years and we are grateful for all the expressions of support and willingness to help.
    My name is Barb Dolan and I have known (and loved) Kelly for 25 years now.  I am going to start this blog and with the help of her family I will do my best to keep you updated on how she is doing and ways we can all help her fight this illness.  When Kelly is feeling up to it she will take over this blog and write the journal entries herself.  Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions or suggestions.  Please keep the guest book full for Kelly and her family!
    We love you, Kelly!!
