Sharon Crowley Martin, Derby Day Party

Derby Day Party|2019

Prowse Farm
5 Blue Hill River Rd., Canton, MA

After a courageous two-year battle, we lost our mother, Sharon Crowley Martin, to stage IV melanoma. Upon her passing in 2007, our family set up the Sharon Crowley Martin Memorial Fund for melanoma research. This fund directly supports the efforts of F. Stephen Hodi, Jr., MD, at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, who is leading the fight against this deadly disease. 100% of your donation will go to Sharon's fund to support Dr. Hodi's research.

This year marks our fifth and final Derby Day Party. We wanted to take this opportunity to offer you our sincerest thanks for your continuous support for our cause. Your donations have helped Dr. Stephen Hodi, at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, in his relentless pursuit of finding a cure for melanoma. With this final event we hope to reach our goal of raising over $500,000 for our mother's fund. We could never have achieved this without the support of our family and friends. This event has been a wonderful tribute to our mother; thank you for helping us keep her memory alive and celebrating with us. We hope you can join us as we celebrate in true Sharon Martin fashion and support this life-saving work. If other events will keep you away this year, we hope you'll consider making a gift to support this great cause.

The fun is not over. We will still need your help and support for the Sharon Crowley Martin Fund for Melanoma Research. Be on the lookout for future events.
