THE STORY:

Strong City Baltimore wrote -

Our Story 

In 2011, our vibrant, fearless daughter, Claire, was diagnosed with adolescent melanoma at age 14. We never imagined someone that young could develop melanoma. As we heartbreakingly discovered, melanoma isn’t always about the sun. Claire’s melanoma was hormonally induced, the result of changes her body went through during puberty. Studies have shown that it can develop in women during pregnancy for the same reason. Claire lost her battle at age 17, but she never lost her sparkling spirit.   

Our Mission 

Melanoma is the second most common cancer in young people between the ages of 10-29. It claims the lives of more women between the ages of 25 and 30 than any other cancer. We created the Claire Marie Foundation to stop this disease in young people. Our mission is to raise clarity and hope in the fight against adolescent and young adult melanoma through awareness, education and prevention. We are already making a difference.   

Our Commitments 

The Claire Marie Foundation offers free skin screenings for 8-21-year olds. We have also entered a collaboration with John Hopkins Dermatology to better educate the medical community on the nuances of melanoma in young people. In addition, our Collegiate Ambassador Program is in place across 20-plus college campuses nationwide. These fun, spirited, student-run events offer education about the importance of sun-safe practices and melanoma preventive care. Every screening, awareness and educational event is done in a vibrant way that reflects Claire’s love for all-things fun, energetic and colorful, including her trademark: “Claire Coral”    Your generous tax deductible donation to our Shells of Hope Campaign can make all the difference in keeping our programs going and saving young lives.
