THE STORY:

SKIN CANCER, TAKE A HIKE
July 16th - July 30th, 2014

Please Help Dr. Ellen Marmur raise a $1 million
Please help tell skin cancer, "TAKE A HIKE!"

The American Academy of Dermatology is excited Dr. Ellen Marmur has launched the “Skin Cancer, Take a Hike!" event to raise awareness and resources for the Academy’s SPOT Skin Cancer™ initiative.  Dr. Marmur will lead a team up Mt. Kilimanjaro. The six-day climb is a physically demanding trek on the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 19,341 feet above sea level!

Having had skin cancer herself and seeing skin cancer patients every day in her Manhattan office as a leading Mohs surgeon, this is both a personal and professional quest for Dr. Marmur.  She is passionate in her pursuit to raise the funds for SPOT® so that the public can become better educated on how to prevent skin cancer and have access to the screenings they need to detect it at the earliest and most treatable time.

The American Academy of Dermatology thanks Dr. Marmur and her hiking team for scaling the highest peak in Africa to raise needed funds toward the efforts of SPOT Skin Cancer and its vision of a ‘world without skin cancer.”

Will you join Dr. Marmur and make a contribution today and tell skin cancer, “Take A Hike!”

ABOUT DR. MARMUR

HOW WILL YOUR TAX DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTIO BE SPENT?
Proceeds from Dr. Marmur’s hike, will support the AAD SPOT Skin CancerTM initiative, providing educational programs and activities, plus online resources to educate the public with the message of sun safety, skin cancer prevention and detection.  Some of the benefits of the AAD initiatives include, but are not limited to:

  • Funding The National Skin Cancer Screening Program, which has provided 2.3 million people with free skin cancer screenings since 1985.
  • Installing shade structures throughout the country. Since 2000, over 573,000 individuals have benefitted from the national Shade Structure Program. Last year over 515 organizations submitted request for shade structure grants – only 22 were fulfilled due to limited funds. 
  • Creating and issue Public Educational Materials, such as skin cancer public service advertisements, promoting the importance of sun protection and the dangers of indoor tanning.
  • Advocating for legislation prohibiting minors under age 18 from using  tanning beds. Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common form of cancer for adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old.
