Every hour of every day of the year, a human being dies of melanoma in the United States. Melanoma strikes people of all ages, all races, all economic levels and both sexes. It is already the most common cancer for women 25 to 29 and the second most common cancer for women 30 to 34 and melanoma is increasing faster than any other cancer. An American's lifetime risk of developing melanoma is about one in 75. The Melanoma Research Foundation was founded by melanoma patients and survivors to fund melanoma research because there is no cure for melanoma. We are dedicated to finding a cure . The MRF seeks donations and other sources of contributions to in turn fund research grants to the top melanoma researchers. We are striving to ensure that a cure for melanoma will be found at the earliest possible moment. Since MRF research grants go directly to melanoma researchers, nearly all individual donations go directly to fund research. MRF invites you to join us in our quest for a melanoma cure by browsing further on our website and taking advantage of the opportunities we provide to join in the fight against melanoma.

The Melanoma Education Foundation is a non-profit organization with the mission of saving lives from this common and tragic disease by emphasizing the importance of monthly self-examination of the skin to detect melanoma while it is thin and curable. We are especially interested in reaching teens and young adults, who are often unaware of melanoma and their vulnerability to it. We also want to educate parents who, by acting now, can prevent the tragedy of melanoma from affecting their children as adults. The Foundation was established by the family of Daniel N. Fine of Peabody, Massachusetts, who lost his life to melanoma in October, 1998 at the age of 26.

This FAQ was written as a public service, and is intended as an educational aid.
Melanoma FAQ This FAQ was written as a public service, and is intended as an educational aid. Nothing herein should be construed as medical advice. Introduction Melanoma is a type of cancer, originating in the melanocytes, the cells containing color. Approximately 32,000 cases per year are currently diagnosed in the United States alone, and the incidence is increasing at the rate of 4.3% per year, one of the fastest increases in occurence rates of all cancers. In about 2% of occurences, the disease is present even though no skin discoloration occurs. This is called amelanotic melanoma.
"According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one person dies from malignant melanoma every hour. The overall incidence rate for the disease is increasing faster than that of any other cancer and by the year 2000, an American's lifetime risk of developing melanoma will be one in 75. The disease is now the most commonly occurring cancer in women between the ages of 25 and 29 and is second only to breast cancer in women ages 30 to 34. " - Sept. 24, 1996 /PRNewswire; SOURCE: Schering-Plough Corporation. When melanoma spreads, it often affects other places on the skin, lymph nodes, lungs, liver, brain or bones. Such secondary spread is referred to as Metastatic Melanoma..

Important Safety Information

Alpha interferons, including INTRON A , cause or aggravate fatal or life-threatening neuropsychiatric, autoimmune, ischemic, and infectious disorders. Patients should be monitored closely with periodic clinical and laboratory evaluations. Patients with persistently severe or worsening signs or symptoms of these conditions should be withdrawn from therapy. In many but not all cases these disorders resolve after stopping INTRON A therapy.

The Melanoma Research Foundation
Research Grant Program
The MRF is pleased to announce the recipient of the MRF Research Grant Awards for 2002-2004:
  • The 2002-2004 recipient of the Diana Ashby Memorial Research Award is Dr. Robert Fuhlbrigge , at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, whose project is entitled, Regulation of T Cell Migration into Melanoma Metastases. Dr. Fuhlbrigge's project will examine factors that influence whether a particular type of immune system cell, the T-cell, infiltrates melanoma tumors. Movement of T-cells into tumors permits them to kill the tumors, and Dr. Fuhlbrigge's project may lead to new ways to stimulate natural immune system attacks against melanoma. The 2002-2004 recipient of the Don Aronow Memorial Research Award is Dr. Jeffrey Gershenwald , at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, whose project is entitled, Role of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-D (VEGF-D) in the Biology of Melanoma Lymphatic Metastasis. Dr. Gershenwald will focus on the role of a specific vascular endothelial growth factor in melanoma metastasis via the lymph system, which is the most common route for the spread of melanoma. Dr. Gershenwald will determine whether this particular factor causes melanoma metastasis in mice, and also study the frequency of occurrence of this factor in human melanoma tissues. Better understanding of this growth factor may ultimately lead to new ways to prevent melanoma from metastasizing. In addition to the above awardees, each of our three awardees from last year
