We have known Melanie since the early 90's and we love her. She is a beautiful person inside and out and has a wonderful son, Jackson. We'll never forget Melanie. She courageously battled Leukemia 3 times! Stuart Scott, a well-known and respected ESPN anchor and reporter once said, “When you die, it does not mean that you lost to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.” Melanie beat cancer.
