Teresa's Ride for the Melanoma Research Foundation
I'm tackling sunshine canyon for a great cause!
Melanoma is the deadliest and fastest growing form of skin cancer and we all want a cure to be found soon. Ride. Rock. Rally. is one way people come together to take action and help support this fight and the mission of the Melanoma Research Foundation.
Melanoma killed my Aunt Mary and my best friend, Sally. My Mom has melanoma. I am so grateful that we have better treatment options for melonoma now than we did seven years ago, but most metastatic melanoma patients still don't survive for very long.
The MRF was instrumental in supporting the development of the drugs that saved Jimmy Carter and many others with metastatic melanoma. Sally participated in some of the early trials. She also said that the MRF was the best patient resource she knew of. We need patient advocates and relentless research supporters, especially now.
Please help me help them to beat melanoma. I am going to ride laps on Sunshine Canyon until I fall over. Sally always laughed when I fell over, so I promise to post pics. Please join my family's fight against melanoma.
