Happy Eyepatch Day!
May 20, 2017
BENEFITING: OCULAR MELANOMA FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 08, 2017
EyeDentity Patchworks is celebrating eye patch day this year by encouraging everyone to donate to the Ocular Melanoma Foundation.
From the Ocular Melanoma Foundation: "Ocular melanoma is an extremely rare cancer of the eye, occurring in 5 to 6 people per million. OM is different from skin (cutaneous) melanoma and there is little evidence it is caused by sun exposure. It is the second most common type of melanoma after skin melanoma, representing approximately 5% of all melanomas. "
We are a small business and will be donating 5% of our sales for the month of May. Since not everyone needs an eyepatch, we also created this page so people would have an opportunity to donate directly. Every little bit counts! Don't forget to wear an eyepatch on May 19-20 to raise awareness and get the conversation going.
