¡Mela-no-mas!

tshirt-mock1_a Our Team Fundraising Goal is $250.00! So far we have raised $745.00!

I was diagnosed with Stage 3b Melanoma in September of 2009. I have been through 4 surgeries, a year of interferon therapy (an immune system treatment with side effects similar to bad flu) and am now participating in a clinical trial. I have had two recurrences of Melanoma which showed up as tumors in my back. I am currently cancer free, but there is no guarantee I will stay that way. I am walking for myself, and my husband’s cousin, Clint Smith, who lost his battle with Melanoma in 2008. I also walk for my children, who now have melanoma in their medical histories on both sides of the family.

Someone dies every hour from melanoma. Over the past 30 years the number of new cases of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, has more than doubled. Please support Melanoma Walk 2011. Proceeds from the 1.5 mile walk stay in Arizona and will support melanoma research, patient care, community outreach and education.
