During these surreal and difficult times – COVID-19 has changed the world for all of us.
While we concentrate on flattening the curve, challenges that existed before this pandemic continue. At MRA, we are keenly aware of the impact on melanoma patients and research. Critical skin checks, follow ups, and surgeries have been delayed and enrollment into potentially life-saving clinical trials has been paused.
At the same time, MRA’s largest annual fundraiser, Leveraged Finance Fights Melanoma, has had to be postponed and revenue is down, reducing our ability to fund life-saving research.
We need your support now more than ever to fund groundbreaking melanoma research and support patients in the fight of their lives.
MRA’s Young Investigator Program funds early career scientists with exciting and new ideas in melanoma research, to recruit and support the next generation of outstanding melanoma investigators. Not only do these awards advance the state of the science, but they also help solidify the research focus of young scientists squarely on melanoma. This year, MRA hopes to issue 12 new Young Investigator awards, but to do so we need your help.
Please, help keep critical research and hope-sustaining programs alive. Make an urgently-needed gift now >>
100% of donations to MRA directly support cutting edge research to advance treatments and prevention for melanoma, with no deductions for fundraising or other costs. While these are difficult times, your support is more critical now than ever before to ensure continued progress for those facing melanoma, today and tomorrow.
Please, help us today.
