Learn how a national melanoma tissue bank will change research.

In order to save lives, we have to strategically improve melanoma research. Breast cancer did it. Prostate cancer did it. Melanoma can do it now with the opening of a national primary tissue bank. It is the key to the cure. Watch our video to learn more.

Melanoma Facts

Fastest growing cancers

Melanoma is the fastest growing cancer in the world, yet research for a cure lags significantly behind other cancers.

Most common for 25-29 year olds

Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old.

Pediatric cases have increased

Pediatric cases of melanoma increased by 30% over the last 10 years.

What if you could help change melanoma research and outcomes for the better?

On January 8, 2012, I became a Stage IV melanoma patient who had miraculously survived seven years and counting, after seven clinical trials and seven brain surgeries. Few, if any of us, thought back in 2005 when I was first diagnosed and told I had a 15% chance of surviving five years that I would be here more than seven years later.

My hope is that melanoma research can be fast-tracked through a national bank of melanoma tissue from primary tumors. Such a bank will lead to collaborative work on new or competing lines of research that defy prior obstacles, which often must favor securing research budgets over advancing science.
