THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends: On September 20, Caroline & I will be taking part in the Walk for Hope, a 5K Run/Walk in Waltham in an effort to raise funds for the Melanoma Foundation of New England. As most of you know, my sister Kathy was diagnosed just over a year ago with Stage 3 Melanoma. Now, Caroline and I want to take part in this walk in order to honor her brave fight over the last year and her incredible strength which continues to inspire us every day. After a difficult surgery and recovery, today, we are so thankful Kathy is cancer free. However, we realize that without the continued advance treatments, research, and education she has received, this may not have been possible. Through the generous support of family and friends, Caroline and I are looking to raise $500 for the Melanoma Foundation of New England. The Foundation provides educational programs aimed at prevention and early detection of skin cancer and melanoma in both adults and children. The Your Skin Is In program reaches out to high school and college students to educate them about the dangers of intentional tanning, Skinny On Skin trains beauty professionals to recognize suspicious moles on their clients’ scalp, backs, ears, etc. and talk to them about seeing a doctor to get them checked. The Foundation also offers support groups, educational symposiums, and a one-on-one support program called Billy’s Buddies where current patients are matched with melanoma survivors. The Foundation’s most recent project is its Sunscreen Dispensers that are currently installed in Boston City & DCR Parks to provide free sunscreen for visitors. All of MFNE programs are free. Caroline and I would truly appreciate any support to help us get to our goal. By bringing education and early detection programs to the masses, we can help decrease the most common cancer diagnosed today. Anyone interested in walking with Caroline and I, ARE WELCOME. You just need to register under out team name—The Fighting Irish. Many thanks to you all. Have a safe and wonderful summer. Love, Michelle & Caroline Sanford
