Melissa Green with check

Melissa Green, 36, and her family, husband Ja’Thi, 6 year-old Jayla and 2 year-old Jaiden call Lincoln, NE home. Melissa was diagnosed in October 2016 initially with triple negative breast cancer, Stage 2 invasive ductal carcinoma. Melissa is the director of childcare at the Trinity Lutheran School, but has been unable to work due to the intensity of the chemotherapy. Melissa’s faith and family have been her rock through this whole ordeal and what has kept her fighting hard to beat breast cancer. Melissa is very passionate about her family and is a huge volleyball fan since playing college-level volleyball. We are proud to have Melissa as one of our 10-year recipients and welcome her to the family.
