Ellen's Story: I am a two-time melanoma survivor and very lucky to still be here! As owner of the Chic to Chic ladies boutique, I founded The Great Chic Challenge 5K Walk/Jog/Run to give back and make a difference. ALL PROCEEDS fund much-needed immunology research. With the support of Mike (my husband), family, and friends, every year has been more successful! We are counting on YOU to sign up for the 5K, donate whatever you can, or better yet, set up your own #10for10 team to make this OUR BEST YEAR YET!!! THANK YOU!!! XO Ellen

The Melanoma Research Alliance is on the front lines of funding promising scientific research to develop effective new treatments for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Although rates are rising, especially in younger people, melanoma is highly curable when caught early. Thanks in part to research supported by MRA, treatments are improving rapidly. By keeping the best scientific researchers fully engaged, you can help wipe out skin cancer!
Please help us fight this disease with your contribution to the Melanoma Research Alliance. Every dollar brings us one step closer to a cure!
