In loving memory of Wayne Stinchcomb who passed away from Melanoma Cancer on April 27, 2010




Melanoma Research Alliance

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, and it is one of the cancers whose incidence is increasing fastest in this country. In 2007, melanoma touched the lives of Debra and Leon Black when Debra was diagnosed with the disease. With melanoma incidence rising dramatically and survival for those with advanced disease remaining static at less than 15 percent, the Black's formed the Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA) under the auspices of the Milken Institute. Thanks to their generous ongoing support, all public donations to MRA go directly to melanoma research. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure by funding the most promising melanoma research worldwide that will accelerate progress and improve outcomes for patients and all who are at risk.
