KEEPING YOU UP-TO-DATE
- Thank you to everyone for attending the 6th Annual Miles Over Melanoma. It was our biggest and best year yet! More information, including photos and an event summary to follow soon.
- Our M.O.M., Inc. is the winner of the 2012 Exceptional Donor Award from the Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital. This honor would not be possible without our supporters. Thank you for continuing the fight against this terrible disease.
There is no cure. If melanoma is found and removed or treated early, a person has a much greater chance of survival. If melanoma is not found early enough, it can grow and spread (metastasize) throughout the body, such as to the lungs, liver, and brain. When this happens, it is extremely difficult to treat, and the result can be fatal.
Thanks to your generosity, Our M.O.M., Inc. has donated $125,000 to aid research for an effective treatment and hopefully a cure for melanoma. As our foundation grows, Our M.O.M., Inc. is dedicated to increase funding for research.
