Meredith's Mission for Melanoma is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization with a MISSION to raise funds for donations to M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, as well as the future University of Texas Medical School in Austin, in support of their research in melanoma medical oncology. It is also our mission to RAISE AWARENESS of this deadly disease, as well as provide guidance on prevention and support others in their fight.
4th Annual - 2019 - Fundraiser Gala
Our 4th Annual Gala will be held on April 27th. This year we decided to change the venue and move the event downtown to the Hilton Hotel. We look forward to seeing everyone again and hopefully some new faces as this endeavor is made possible by your generous contributions. We will be adding information about the Gala in the next couple of months.
A.I. skin mapping tool for The Dell Medical School
We are very pleased to announce that The Dell Medical School is procuring a very useful tool called FotoFinder. Because of our combined $50,000 donation from 2017 and 2018, now patients can have their entire body mapped to analzye and more efficiently track any changes to moles and other skin issues using high resolution photography and artificial intelligence. Find out more about the device here.
Meredith's Mission for Melanoma is proud to announce our donation distribution from our 2018 efforts. As you might recall, last year we donated a total of $40,000 to the Melanoma Medical Oncology department at MD Anderson and the Dell Medical School melanoma research. This year, The Dell Medical School – LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes - is receiving $30,000 and MD Anderson is receiving $20,000 to aid in their melanoma research efforts. Congratulations to everyone who made this possible! See the details in News
