Our M.O.M. Inc.
KEEPING YOU UP-TO-DATE

  • Our M.O.M., Inc. is taking a year off in 2018 from Miles Over Melanoma and looks forward to seeing everyone on May 11, 2019! Remember to be skin safe this spring and summer, doing everything you can to prevent skin cancer and getting anything suspicious looked at by a doctor right away.

  • Our M.O.M., Inc. is the winner of the 2012 Exceptional Donor Award from the Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital. This honor would not be possible without our supporters. Thank you for continuing the fight against this terrible disease.

Cure

There is no cure. If melanoma is found and removed or treated early, a person has a much greater chance of survival. If melanoma is not found early enough, it can grow and spread (metastasize) throughout the body, such as to the lungs, liver, and brain. When this happens, it is extremely difficult to treat, and the result can be fatal.

Thanks to your generosity, Our M.O.M., Inc. has donated $210,000 to aid research for an effective treatment and hopefully a cure for melanoma. As our foundation grows, Our M.O.M., Inc. is dedicated to increase funding for research.
