Saturday, Sept. 22, at 10 a.m. the 3rd annual Melanoma Walk Kick Off will be held at the University of Arizona Cancer Center’s Kiewit Auditorium, 1515 N. Campbell Avenue. A talk about melanoma by Lee Cranmer, MD, PhD, will be the highlight of the event. “The future for skin cancer patients never looked brighter,” said Dr. Cranmer. After his presentation there will be time for a very informative Q & A session. This presentation will be of great interest to the general public because The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 9,000 people will die from melanoma this year. Melanoma can happen to anyone.
Summit Hut will present the latest in sun-safe clothing and walk accessories, and Martha Bishop, a melanoma survivor, will talk about her personal journey. The staff of the Skin Cancer Institute will also be on hand to answer questions about the Melanoma Walk and how to register for the event to be held October 20th, from 2 to 6 pm at University of Arizona Cancer Center- North Campus.
