Thank you to those of you who participated and donated to Andy’s 6th Annual Event!

We enjoyed a great day of golf at Greystone Golf club in Whitehall MD and dinner on the waterfront at Captain James’ Crab Shack on the inner harbor in Baltimore.  Here are a few of the photos

  1. Dear Ginny and Craig,
    I hope you will get this message; I’m afraid I do not have your direct email addresses. Just wanted to let you know that we have had a wonderful Columbus Day weekend here at Sunny Hill, courtesy of the Andrew C. Marsh Memorial Fund. This time it was just the three of us; my older son Daniel started college this fall at Bryant University in Rhode Island.

    I also wanted to let you know that my husband had a second melanoma removed from his face two weeks ago. Fortunately, once again, it was caught by the dermatology physician’s assistant who caught the first one; both at an “in situ” stage. The cosmetic surgeon said it was a “miracle” that the PA suspected it and suggested a biopsy. The cosmetic surgeon also said that neither he nor the Mohs surgeon would have looked at it and suspected cancer. My husband’s mother had a melanoma on her neck removed several months ago; there seems to be a genetic component. It’s hard to convince my sons to be diligent about wearing sunscreen, even with their family history, but at least they do agree to a full skin cancer screening every year.

    Of course, all of this makes me think of your remarkable son Andrew, and the grace and courage he showed to educate others about melanoma. I truly believe that your son saved my husband’s life. If it weren’t for Andrew sharing his journey, I would not have known about melanoma, would not have researched it, and would not have learned that my husband, with his red hair and freckles, was at a higher risk than the general population. I will always remember Andrew with great admiration, and I am so glad that I got to know him. He continues to be a blessing to me and to my family.

    With all good wishes for you and your family,
    Colleen P. Murphy
