OUR MISSION

Our mission is to increase awareness for melanoma prevention, provide information on skin cancer detection, and educate families regarding the extreme damaging effects of the sun.  We are devoted to raising funds that help support community awareness, and national research that will ultimately find a cure for melanoma.

OUR STORY

Words to live by.... at the top of the refrigerator above all the family photos and momentous is a 3x5 magnet with large Bold letters reading… “Whoever said that winning isn’t everything never had to fight cancer.” This is a mantra that Kathy Earley has adopted and lives by. Acknowledging the power of this message is a daily motivation for the entire Team Earley organization.

Our cancer journey started almost 11 years ago in a somewhat ironic twist, as Kathy Earley trained for a nationally recognized breast cancer Triathlon fundraiser, she was diagnosed with stage IIIA melanoma after a routine physical exam. Despite the news, Kathy completed the Triathlon and went on to endure several proactive surgeries in her left leg, weeks of crutches and physical therapy, and 12 months of interferon injections complimented by a litany of doctor appointments at Dana Faber (Boston). Subsequent to Kathy's initial site diagnosis, was able to detect and remediate two additional melanoma sites.

Clinically Kathy is considered a “cancer survivor” celebrating her tenth anniversary with No Evidence of Disease (NED) in September 2017. While AWARENESS is the signature message for TEAM EARLEY, EDUCATION is a huge component of The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission, and is ultimately key to the successful mitigation of skin cancer at early stages.

Kathy has returned to training with her family in preparation for the 122nd running of the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 16, 2018. We are a fundraising team with a running problem. So many aspects of our lives are taken for granted, being the spouse of a cancer survivor and facing it’s every-day challenges can really put things into perspective for you; what you value, how you prioritize, and above all the clarity to appreciate loved ones and friendships.
