Monica Lyn (Bearse) Alty, 46, passed away on November 11, 2020, at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston after a courageous battle with cancer.

Monica graduated from Sandwich High School Class of 1992 and went on to earn her Associate's Degree, in 2004, from Cape Cod Community College in Hyannis. She started her career as a Registered Nurse and went on to work for Falmouth Pediatrics. She adored and was extremely grateful for her Falmouth Pediatric Family, Cheer Family and her Monica Strong Supporters. Her children were her everything. She never let her cancer diagnosis slow her down and her positive attitude and smile were infectious. If you were granted the gift to know her, you were undoubtedly touched by her love. Her legacy lives on.....Monica-Strong.

Also survived by many nieces, nephews, extended family, friends and her cherished dog Peanut.

Monica was everything to everyone she knew and loved. She was a hero, a fighter, a best friend and a cancer warrior. Her love and determination had no bounds.

A special thank you to Dr. Partridge and her Dana Farber team.

A Celebration of life will be held at a later date.
