Her voice is amazing.She is from our old stomping grounds.Died at the age of 33 from a melanoma mole on her back.It went into her bones and lungs and even with extensive radiation she was gone in less then 6 weeks.
My daughter calls me tonight and said she is in so much hip pain that she can barely walk.I am so concerned since I read and posted this.Her melanoma looked exactly like this.
In July 1996, Cassidy noticed an ache in her hips, which she attributed to stiffness from painting murals while perched atop a stepladder.
Her doctors estimated she had three to five months to live. Cassidy opted for aggressive treatment, but her health deteriorated rapidly.
She was subsequently admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Cassidy died at her family home in Bowie, November 2, 1996, at the age of 33.
