NOW96.3 Woman of the Week - Week of August 7th, 2017

Name: Melissa McMillan

Works at: Illinois Electric Works

From: Granite City, IL

Melissa and her husband found out that he had a cancerous tumor on his right kidney. When the time came for the surgery to remove his kidney, she was taking care of their 5yr old daughter and 3yr old son, as well as, her 14yr old stepdaughter and 13yr old stepson. (She also has a 17yr old and a 20yr old stepson). She stayed by her husband's side the entire time. Unfortunately, on a recent trip to the ER, they discovered the cancer has spread. Melissa and her family have also struggled with their landlord and appeared in court to prove their rent had been paid and on time each month. Melissa continues to work a full time job then comes home to her family to take care of them. Melissa starts her day at 5am with each day ending around midnight as she continues to do most of the housework while everyone sleeps.
