BENEFITING: OCULAR MELANOMA FOUNDATION
Eye am 30 is a beef and beer event we are throwing to celebrate my husband, Phil, turning 30 while raising awareness and funds for the Ocular Melanoma Foundation! Phil was diagnosed in April 2016 with this scary and rare cancer of the eye. Only 2000 individuals a year are diagnosed with OM in the United States, about half of those cases will go on to develop advanced metastatic disease. Right now, there is no cure for metastatic ocular melanoma, which is why raising funds to organizations that support research into finding a cure is SOOO important. Phil has undergone treatment at WIlls Eye hospital to treat the primary tumor that was found, and has since had CLEAN scans for over a year! YAY! Philanthropy has always been important to Phil so to honor him turning 30 years old, what better way then doing it BIG, and helping to RAISE money for OMF!!
