Skin Cancer Prevention and Mollie's Fund

In 2001, Marymount student Mollie Biggane died at the age of 20 from Melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer. The fountain in Marymount’s Rowley Courtyard was a gift of the Biggane family, in memory of Mollie.

The Mollie Biggane Melanoma Foundation (“Mollie’s Fund”) raises money for melanoma research, education, and prevention programs. Marymount University is not affiliated with Mollie’s Fund; however, we applaud their work to increase awareness and prevention of this deadly disease, and we remember Mollie with affection.
