Why join Team Gordie:
Melanoma took my Dad suddenly at age 58. We, his family and friends, miss him so very much...and it's heartbreaking his grandkids never got to know him. Please understand, melanoma is not "just skin cancer." Doctors never found the original site of the melanoma; sometimes it can be hidden, like on your scalp, eyes, gastrointestinal tract. This year, I have a dear friend fighting for her life with mucosal melanoma. Because melanoma is still mysterious like this, it's why more research needs to be done. Help us raise research funds to keep this disease from happening to other families.
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.
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.
