When Mary Kelly first heard the words "You have cancer," unfortunately, it wasn't her first personal encounter. Her mother Millie, was diagnosed with her first of three different cancers when Mary Kelly was 25 years old. Millie survived all three and died of natural causes at the age of 91. Breast cancer came into Mary Kelly's own life 17 years ago, and she started her own fight beginning with stage one breast cancer. She had a 13 fabulous years in remission. Four years ago cancer re-entered Mary Kelly's life. It was found in her lymph nodes, and in December of 2017 it metastasized to her brain. She's had surgeries, infusions, radiation treatments and SRS surgery. At this time, she feels so fortunate to only be doing "pills and shots" to try and keep the cancer from spreading more than it has already.
Mary Kelly is blessed to have family near and far. She is married to David Nelson Farrish and has three children: Davis and his wife Sarah Winsor; Gray and his fiancé Maggie; Sarah Neal and her husband Nate. And she has two grandchildren John Morgan and Sam, children of Davis and Sarah Winsor.
In addition to fighting cancer, Mary Kelly has been a part of numerous community activities. She is a sustaining member of the Junior League of Jackson, where she served on the Mistletoe Marketplace steering committee. She devoted her time to many other projects including the Jackson Prep Parent's Association fundraiser as chair; served on the St. Andrew's Episcopal School PTA board; served as Jackson Chi Omega alumni board member and was also a former member of the Cancer League of Jackson. Mary Kelly has also volunteered with the MS Children's Museum, Goodwill, St James Episcopal Church and many other civic and community organizations. One of Mary Kelly's many hobbies included playing tennis and being a member of the Jackson Ladies Tennis Association.
Currently, Mary Kelly is a multi-million dollar producer at Nix-Tann Real Estate and truly loves every second of her job. It's a blessing in many ways that your average person may not understand, including the fact that staying busy keeps Mary Kelly off the computer Googling stage four breast and now brain cancer. Instead, she turns to Google to research houses for her clients.
"Wow...have I been doing this for 17 years?" Mary Kelly said, "It's just become a part of me and who I am. I have an extremely blessed life, and I love being able to share all of my ups and downs with family and friends."
