Our Story

Kelly O’Donnell Ware of Kingsville, MD was diagnosed with late-stage metastatic melanoma at the age of 39. Her disease was at an aggressive stage, and she had few options. Thus began her journey with an invasive treatment plan and two clinical trials. In 2009, Kelly founded Kelly’s Dream, a 501(c)3 nonprofit providing financial assistance to cancer patients in Maryland and raising awareness to reduce the incidence of melanoma and other forms of skin cancer.
