Family and friends of Katie Arietta are raising awareness of skin cancer and the concerns for their friend who is battling progressive melanoma.


In 2021, the 37-year-old mother of two children was diagnosed with state 3B melanoma, spreading to her lymph nodes and bones. This month, she had extensive surgery and started an aggressive treatment plan – and it’s been a battle.


Childhood friends Michelle Phillips and ErinAnn Beebe, who were cheerleaders together at Cape Henlopen High School, tells TV Delmarva about the kind of person Katie is.


Michelle owns a saloon, where people have been stopping in to donate and help the family. ErinAnn and Katie’s family also set up a GoFundMe and a Meal Train, while helping raise awareness for the disease.
