I wanted to take a minute to let everyone know about the upcoming 2nd Annual Wings of Hope for Melanoma Gala in Philadelphia at the National Constitution Center. This event will take place on Tuesday, October 28, 2014.
The Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas are the Melanoma Research Foundation's premier fundraising events. Join the MRF/CURE OM as we recognize true heroes in the melanoma community, raise awareness and much needed funding for melanoma research. In addition to giving the MRF's Humanitarian Award during the galas, Courage Awards are also presented to individuals who have shown tremendous strength in their battles with melanoma.
This year, Carol Shields, MD, Co-Director of the Oncology Service, Wills Eye Hospital and Professor of Opthalmology at Thomas Jefferson University and Meenhard Herlyn, D.V.M., D.Sc., Caspar Wistar Professor in Melanoma and Director of the Wistar Institute Melanoma Reasearch Center will be awarded for their outstanding medical advances with the MRF's Humanitarian Award during the gala.
