We will also host an Immunotherapy in Melanoma Symposium on August 12-13, 2016 in New York City. This is a one-of-kind event specifically for melanoma patients (and their caregiver) who are using or have used some form of melanoma immunotherapy. The MRF will reimburse travel expenses up to $300 per person for two people in each party to attend. The hotel arrangements will also be taken care of. We have limited space and reservations will be made on a first come, first serve basis. To learn more or to register, please view, fill out and return the Event Registration & Travel Reimbursement Form.
I hope to see you at an event near you this year!
