Light the Night Purple!

From all of us at The Purple Promise Foundation, we would like to thank you for being part of our community fight to end melanoma. We are all saddened at the cancellation of our annual Light The Night Purple event here in Charlotte; it was not an easy decision to make but we know that our community understands why we are unable to have the event we have all come to know and love.

We hope that you will take the time to explore all that we have been doing this past year in the fight to end melanoma and we look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events later in 2020.

From everyone at The Purple Promise Foundation to End Melanoma, we send our thoughts and best wishes for good health to you and your families during this time.

Don't forget, if you are near Uptown on May 5th please be sure to check out the Wells Fargo Duke Energy Building to see it lit up purple in honor of our event!

Dr. Richard White

In 2008 a person diagnosed with late-stage melanoma had a 5% chance of survival. Today, with all the new drugs, treatments, and research being conducted a person that reacts favorably to the drugs prescribed has close to a 60% chance of survival for at least 4 years. This is why it is so important to continue to fight for our cause. In just 12 years we have made great advancements and will be able to continue to see great advancements over the next decade with your support.

Thank you, Dr. White, for your continued dedication to fighting to end melanoma and for being a member of our board of directors.

Foundation Updates

2019 was another great year for The Purple Promise Foundation. Levine Cancer Institute continued their work on immunotherapy research thanks to our last grant. In October the board had the honor of being shown the research labs in the new building that opened in the Spring of 2019.

We continued our support to The Girls Scouts Hornets Nest Council of Mecklenburg County through our sunscreen dispensers at their Leadership/Summer Camp in Statesville. For the 7th year, we participated in The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Specialists of the Carolinas annual Bootox Event.

Finally, our Purple Promise tent was utilized immensely this year! Along with having our tent visible at these events we also continued to provide free sunscreen, lip balm and brochures for all at the annual South End Shuffle 5K & Mile Run, the annual Charlotte Latin School May Day Play Day, and for the second year in a row at the Charlotte Pride Festival in Uptown.

Thank You!

We would like to extend a thank you to our sponsors and supporters for your continued dedication to our foundation and the fight to end melanoma.
