Wings of Hope for Melanoma
galas are the Melanoma Research Foundation’s premier fundraising events. Join the MRF at the 2nd annual Wings of Hope for Melanoma Philadelphia gala as we recognize true heroes in the melanoma community, raise awareness and much-needed funding for melanoma research. In addition to giving the MRF's Humanitarian Award during the galas, Courage Awards are also presented to individuals who have shown tremendous strength in their battles with melanoma.
Meenhard Herlyn, D.V.M., D.Sc., Caspar Wistar Professor in Melanoma Research and Director of the Wistar Institute Melanoma Research Center, and Carol Shields, MD, Co-Director of the Oncology Service, Wills Eye Hospital and Professor of Ophthalmology at Thomas Jefferson University will be awarded for their outstanding medical advances with the MRF's Humanitarian Award during the gala.
Brigette Douglass, Jerry Dover, Tara Miller, T.J. Sharpe and Sarah Weaver will each receive a Courage Award for their tremendous fight against melanoma. WPVI-TV 6ABC anchor Brian Taff will serve as the gala emcee.
