30 years ago at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, 12 year old Christy Farley received the gift of life, a heart transplant. Christy is now 43 years old and a single mother to an 8 year old daughter. As a heart transplant patient, life has had its challenges. Yet, Christy forged on by getting her R.N, BSN and by working as a registered nurse manager until her health began failing again.

This past year she faced two surgeries to remove melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. She has just learned that the cancer is now at stage 4 and has spread to her brain, and other parts of her body. Christy is devastated, but hopeful. The life-saving immunosuppressant medications which she takes so her body doesn't reject her heart, are causing the melanoma to grow at a rapid rate. Christy will always be battling melanoma. She also has an 85% blockage of a main vessel in her heart that requires a cardiac stent to unblock it, but the blockage cannot be fixed until the cancer is under control. Her cardiac team along with the oncologist will be meeting to try to come up with a treatment to battle the melanoma, while at the same time protecting her heart from being rejected. It's a very complicated situation!

All donated funds will be used for Christy's upcoming surgeries, cancer treatments, diagnostic procedures, traveling expenses to and from Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, and any medical bills not covered by her health insurance. Any help you can give would be very much appreciated. Christy and her family thank you!

I’m very saddened to report that Christy Farley, who fought a brave, long fight with cancer, passed away this morning. She had been fighting stage 4 melanoma for 2 years, and she was one of the strongest and bravest people I’ve met. Christy, motivated by the tremendous love and affection she had for her daughter, Analise, fought as hard as she could to live. Now that Christy is no longer suffering, and is in heaven, please keep Analise in your thoughts and prayers, as she grieves for her mom.

I’ll provide an update about funeral arrangements as they become available. Thank you for all of your support. It meant a lot to Christy, and her family.

This past weekend, Christy started targeted therapy. She is taking two different medications that target and attack the cancer cells. One medication is taken once daily, the other every 12 hours. She has a follow-up doctor's appointment early this week. Each day, your thoughts, prayers, and support have a major positive impact. Please 'Share' and 'Like'.
