Team Mel is in honor of Melissa McGroerty Fisher. Melissa was the kindest, most loving person I have ever met. She never met a stranger. She cared deeply about her friends. Melissa was truly beautiful inside and out. Unfortunately, Melissa gained her wings on November 17, 2015.
We are participating in the National Race to End Women's Cancer because we believe in what the Foundation for Women's Cancer does with the donations:
- Raise public awareness of ways to prevent, detect and optimally treat gynecologic cancers;
- Provide education about gynecologic cancers and the importance of seeking care first from a gynecologic oncologist if a gynecologic cancer is suspected or diagnosed;
- Support promising, innovative gynecologic cancer research and train a cadre of clinicians/scientists to participate in clinically relevant research.
We are also doing this so that we don't lose one more wife, daughter, sister, aunt, or friend. We are doing this to honor Melissa, and the way she lived life to fullest, every single day.
We love you Mel.
