THE STORY:

 Welcome to my fundraising page!  Thanks for considering a donation to Jack’s Fund.  Why should you join me in the fight?

As the diener sliced easily through his skin with the systematic Y-shaped incision I had seen so many times before, I took one last look at his face—sunken-in eyes with dark circles, gaunt features, and so aged for such a young man—and thought of how quickly this aggressive disease took over his body.  His abdominal cavity was seeded with tumor nodules which adhered his spleen to his diaphragm to his mesentery to his bowel.  I was horrified.  And yet, I was also vindicated: Melanoma. 

The exerpt above was from an instance in medical school when I encountered a young person on the autopsy table who had died from melanoma.  As an intern I met not one but two young men dying from melanoma.  Both of them were in their 30s.  One had a 2 year old baby.  I am now a dermatology resident, and have no doubt that I will continue to encounter the encounter more unfortunate stories like these.

If you have had spots removed, precancerous cells, or have melanoma, you already know.  If you have relatives or close friends with recent evidence of melanoma you will appreciate my request for money.

If you have been fortunate so far, let me explain why Jack’s Fund and I need your donation.

Melanoma is the second most common cancer for young adults ages 15-29.  The risk of being diagnosed with melanoma doubles with five or more sunburns at any age, and exposure to tanning beds in youth increases risk by 75%! 

Since the risk of melanoma affects or has affected each and every one of us, the work that Jack’s Fund is doing to increase research funding and to develop awareness programs is so important!   For more info on the work Jack’s Fund is doing go to www.jacksfund.org.

 

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
