Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Melanoma is a type of cancer, most often of the skin. It occurs in melanocytes, the cells that color the skin and form moles.
- Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer because it can spread to lymph nodes and distant organs.
- In 2014, it is expected that approximately 77,000 Americans will be diagnosed with melanoma, resulting in nearly 10,000 deaths.
“We are proud to partner with the Melanoma Research Foundation. The MRF is committed to research, education, and advocacy in the battle to find more effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for melanoma,” said Mike Hanna, CEO, NewMedical Technology, Inc. “With our support, we hope to help raise awareness and support medical research to find effective new treatments for melanoma. Many of our partner dermatologists and plastic surgeons refer their patients to our products after melanoma surgery. We see the increasing prevalence of this life-threatening cancer, and want to contribute to this worthwhile cause.”
