2024 Chicago Miles for Melanoma

Arlene's Warriors

Arlene OConnor, an incredible wife, mom, grandma, and great-grandma, bravely fought melanoma for over two decades. We tragically lost her to this terrible disease two and a half years ago, but her beautiful spirit lives on. Her unwavering strength included participating in clinical trials to find a cure, even though she knew it might be too late for her. Her hope was to spare future generations the heartbreak this disease causes, especially her cherished grandchildren and great-children. 

That's why we're walking in Miles for Melanoma. Every step is a tribute to her, a continuation of her fight. In her memory, we'd be honored if you'd consider joining us for the walk, donating to the cause, sharing this page, or simply sending up a prayer. Anything you can do helps us honor her legacy and bring us closer to a future free of melanoma.
