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.
statistics are provided from the October 2019 Purple Promise Foundation board of directors meeting at Levine Cancer Institute
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.
We would love to hear from you.
