We are very excited to be hosting our first annual event here in St. Paul, MN. As part of this event our dermatologists will offer skin cancer screenings in accordance with the American Academy of Dermatology. We know you would like to be a part of such a successful event.
The event will be chip-timed on a certified course.
Major strides are being made in melanoma research. With your support, the MRF can fund research that will unlock the mysteries of this devastating disease, and lead to better treatment options, and eventually, a cure. Melanoma is the deadliest skin cancer, yet it receives less research funding. The incidence of melanoma is increasing faster than any other cancer, and an American’s lifetime risk of developing melanoma is one in 60.
By sponsoring our event, you can help us give more research grant money to doctors who are helping us find new and better treatments. In 2011 the FDA approved two new melanoma drugs – it’s been 13 years since we have seen a new treatment on the market. Those drugs came to be based partially on research done by MRF grantees. We can’t make that kind of progress without your support.
