About the 2017 #CUREOM Unite! Campaign

The 2017 #CUREOM Unite! campaign will support the MRF's CURE OM mission to increase awareness, education, and support for people affected by OM as well as catalyze research to find effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for OM. 

From April 1 - November 1, 2017 we invite you to Unite! — patients, caregivers, friends, family, doctors, nurses and researchers - in support of those affected by ocular melanoma. Help us save lives!

What impact does your support have on the OM community?

DID YOU KNOW THAT CURE OM: 

  • Funds research directly through peer-reviewed research grants. To date, CURE OM has awarded seven research grants contributing over $1.2 million to OM-specific research (including one funded by the 2015 #CUREOM Unite! Campaign).
  • Organizes and hosts international scientific meetings to catalyze research as well as to increase coordination and collaboration in the field.
  • Created a first-of-its-kind Patient and Caregiver Research Grant Review Committee to work with expert scientific reviewers and provide a patient perspective to select research grant recipients. 
  • Hosts the annual international Eyes on a Cure OM Patient and Family Symposium to bring the latest research, education and support resources to the OM community. To date, CURE OM has hosted six (and counting!).
  • Convenes and collaborates with partners to establish a national OM patient registry to accelerate research. This effort is being developed with the support of the 2016 #CUREOM Unite! campaign!
