In Clare’s memory, her husband whom she married 1.5 year ago, and her loved ones are doing their best to create awareness about how Clare died by creating the Clare Daly Foundation.
Moreover, they want to help people be better aware of their own bodies than what doctors tell them, because Clare was suffering from one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer in the world and did not get effectively diagnosed earlier on.1
Around three years ago, Clare noticed a suspicious mole on her left shoulder and had it removed because the tests showed that it was a malignant melanoma. Since it was caught in the earlier stages, it could be successfully treated, as opposed to being discovered in its late stages.
So Clare recovered and lived on after that.
However, she suddenly complained about an ache in her left shoulder again and noticed a little lump exactly where the removed mole was. So she began visiting doctors for the next four months, but they all brushed it off as a muscle injury.
But by the end of those months, she was diagnosed with malignant melanoma, by which time, had spread to her lungs and lymph nodes.
