Help Us Change the Landscape of Melanoma

Donate to SOS today.

Skin of Steel’s primary focus is to fund a national melanoma tissue bank so that researchers have access to the critical tool they need for research: fresh frozen primary tumor tissues. Your donation today will benefit melanoma patients tomorrow.

How much funding does the bank need?

$3.5 million will establish the national melanoma tissue bank at all four research institutions and cover the costs of the initial three years of tissue collection and annotation.

You can improve the outcome for your family and the hundreds of thousands of others who may develop melanoma.

Help us provide researchers with the tools they need most: access to fresh-frozen, primary tissue and the genetic biomarkers to be discovered within.
