Support Her Fight Against Melanoma!
A Message From Sharon
I was diagnosed with Melanoma on my left arm and had my first surgery in December 2007. Because my children were young at the time, I knew I had to do everything in my power to overcome this diagnosis. After that surgery, I decided on the treatment and began the drug Interferon. That following September 2008, they discovered a nodule in my left lung. After being on Interferon for 10 ½ months, I had that Melanoma tumor removed on March 13, 2009. I then completed a clinical trial that summer at Memorial Sloan Kettering. I am very happy to say that I am presently 10 years cancer free of this horrific cancer. I gained the strength to get through these tough times from the love of my 2 children, and also the love and support from of my family and friends. This will be my 6th year taking part in the CCMAC run. This year my daughter Delaney (17) and son Kevin (15) will be part of my team. Today, I am still very overwhelmed with the incredible support I receive from all those in my life. I hope to raise money to help CCMAC continue to do their part to educate and spread awareness so that no one else has to endure this horrific cancer.
Purpose: To increase awareness of the dangers of unprotected sun exposure and it’s link to skin cancer and the deadly disease Melanoma. To spread the “Be Sun Smart” message and saves lives.
