Team PediCure for Carrie
Melanoma is the deadliest and fastest growing form of skin cancer and we all want a cure to be found soon. Miles for Melanoma is the way people come together to take action and help support this fight and the mission of the Melanoma Research Foundation.
Team PediCure was founded by Carrie Blessing Keith after she was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma in May 2017. Despite the best care currently available, we lost Carrie last October, but we--her friends and family--have vowed to continue her support of the MRF by participating in Miles for Melanoma in her honor.
Every step matters and every step counts. Significant advancement has been made in the past few years in improved detection, new drug treatments and better survival rates. This progress has been built on the breakthroughs made fighting other types of cancers, as well as the existing foundation of melanoma research.
There is more to be done and a long way to go, but the finish line is in sight. The energy, enthusiasm and encouragement from patients, survivors, families, friends, caregivers, and the medical community impacts many lives and many future.
