War on Melnoma Event

There was a great turnout for the event on Saturday. The weather was overcast and dry, perfect for the AIM fundrasing walk. There were survivors, their supporters, those honoring someone they lost, and some who have not had melanoma touch their lives but realize the risk. Melanoma does not discriminnate: old or young, rich or poor, male or female, everyone is at risk. Vendor tables with researchers and advacocy groups were busy increasing the knowledge base of all that attended. After the walk a Q & A session with a panel of doctors was held and was well attended. There is no substitution for this type of interaction. From 1-2 Dr. KellyGrifftith- Bauer, MD presented her research project. Her "Scar Project Gallery" in inspiring. It teaches us about the people behind the scars. What their journey has taught them and what they hope from the future.
