Marcia had surgery for melanoma on her scalp five years ago. Metastatic lesions in her lung and brain were found in December of 2019. Over months of surgery, immunotherapy and radiation she was brave, determined and strong. Our family is deeply grateful for the many prayers and thoughtful messages from friends and family.
