Update from Roy Combs:
I wanted to let everyone know that we lost Cara Walters Combs this morning. I don't have to tell you how great of a person she was. She will be missed by all. I always knew she was destined for greater things. We all have a perfect angel looking over us. She was the strongest person I ever met and the best wife and mother. She sacrificed everything so her legacy could live on. Thank you all for your support and prayers. She was my everything and always will be.

Cara Combs, who is a wife, sister, daughter and mother of 3 wonderful children was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma.  She is also 26 weeks pregnant.  At this time she will wait to begin treatment until the baby is 28 weeks.  There is no good decision here and they are both fighting for their lives.  At 38 you don't expect to find out that you are dying.  It has definitely put things into perspective for the family.  The baby will be born in early December and she will start her treatment 48 hours later.  The family will have many battles to fight at this time.   We have decided to set up a GoFundMe account so that the family can continue to provide as much normalcy to the kids as possible during this difficult time.  We appreciate everyone’s love and support.

I lost my mother 7 months ago to Stage 4 melanoma. She was a strong, beautiful woman, just like your wife. Bad times happen to amazing people, but I have to say we have some awesome Angels looking after our families. God Bless you, your children and your family.

My husband has stage IV melanoma also, he is on his 3rd treatment in just a year, so far the cancer has not spread but it is not in remission either so we just keep praying and taking one day at a time,. The Dr's say he has a very agressive form of melanoma, they did 2 surgeries and within 2 weeks the melanoma was back. Our prayers go out to this family who have lost a mother and a wife but have gained a new baby girl. I'm sure the Mom is looking down fom heaven and watching over her family. May God bless you all

I am so sorry for your loss. My father died of melanoma at about 44 years of age. It is a terrible disease. I so admire this mother who put her child first - this doesn't happen so much of the time. I am sure I would have done the same thing. God bless this family and give them peace.

Heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire family. Cara was an amazing, selfless woman. I wish I had known her but I do know that her spirit lives on through her children. May GOD give her husband strength to carry on. He definitely is dealing with a lot and I have so much empathy for him.

I lost a wonderful friend to Melanoma at the age of 43. It didn't come in the form of a mole, it was a lump right below her collar bone which at first they thought may have been breast cancer. By the time they caught it, it was everywhere. They never tell you it can come in the form of lumps, just moles. So terribly sad. Your entire family is in my thoughts and prayers and I am truly sorry for your awful loss.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. My sister was also diagnosed with rare and sudden cancer during her pregnancy (around 22weeks) with twins (adenocarcinoma of the GI track) She held on as long as she could before delivering around 26 weeks as well. She passed just after delivery in January of 2014. My thoughts are with you and your family, I know how devastating this is.
