The Frank CURE OM Squad
In February 2011, my brother-in-law, Frank, was diagnosed with ocular melanoma, a rare form of skin cancer that affects a layer in the retina. He has spent 8 years battling this cancer. 4 years ago the cancer traveled to his liver. Frank put on quite a fight, but lost that fight on Sept 9th 2017.
The walk is a way to fight back. There is a desperate need for more research on ocular melanoma. There is no cure. There are only treatments that slow the progression of the disease. And unlike other types of cancer, OM does not have corporate sponsors, or celebrity spokespersons. What is does have is people like us, raising money and making people aware of OM.
Help us raise money and awareness in our walk by joining our team or donating money.
