Coming up in a couple of weeks is a special fundraising event hosted by the Melanoma Research Foundation called the Wings of Hope Gala. This event is held in S.F. every May at the Bentley Reserve. This year I will have the priviledge to be attending. I wish that my hubbie could go with me, but it is just too expensive for both of us to go. Luckily, my parents and sisters will attend with me!
It is a fun, inspiring night where you get to mingle with other melanoma survivors, doctors, and those that work hard to raise money and awareness for melanoma research and funding. There is a silent auction, dinner, and awards given out. Each year, MRF recognizes a doctor who has dedicated a lot of time to melanoma research and his/her patients. MRF also gives out "Courage Awards" to a few melanoma survivors who have showed strength and courage in their fight with melanoma. I was chosen to be one of the recipients of that award this year.
If you live in the Bay area and would like to attend this event, click on the link below to buy a ticket(s) and get more details on the event. OR, if you would like to donate to this cause, even if only a small amount, that is also appreciated. MRF raises money to primarily fund melanoma treatments and research, which as we know, is very important to eventually finding a cure. If you can donate, click on the link below.
Hope to see you there! And thank you for your support!!
