Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, claiming one life in the US each hour. The Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA), founded by Debra and Leon Black in 2007, is the largest private funder of melanoma research worldwide. MRA aims to end suffering and death due to melanoma by collaborating with all stakeholders to accelerate powerful research, advance cures for all patients and prevent more melanomas. Thanks to the generous support of its founders, 100% of every donation to MRA goes directly to melanoma research. 

To date, MRA has awarded nearly $68 million to 180 research programs to make transforming advances in the prevention, diagnosis, staging, and treatment of melanoma. MRA funding has supported 21 clinical trials and 48 treatment approaches, including all eight melanoma treatments approved by the FDA since 2011. In 2014 MRA was ranked first out of the top 30 grant-giving disease foundations by Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News.
