Melanoma Research Foundation and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Host Educational Symposium and Reception for Melanoma Patients, Family Members and Healthcare Providers
Date:9/28/2007

SEATTLE, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Every hour of every day, someone dies of melanoma in the United States, making this disease one of the fastest growing cancers in the U.S. and worldwide. Since 1975, the incidence rate of new melanomas has more than doubled-striking people of all ages, all races, all economic levels and both sexes. Currently, there are more new cases of melanoma than HIV/AIDS. The good news is that when melanoma is found early there is an excellent chance of recovery.

Katie Bunker is vivid testimony to that fact. Three years ago, at the age of 13, Katie was diagnosed with node-positive melanoma. She had several lymph nodes removed and was treated for a year with interferon. Today Katie is a healthy 16-year-old, but she has her skin checked every 6 months and she is very aware that she will live with the risk of melanoma for the rest of her life-or until a cure is found.

On Friday, November 2, 2007, Katie will co-chair the Northwest Melanoma Symposium: From Science to Survivorship, the first educational symposium for melanoma patients, family members and healthcare providers offered in the Northwest. Presented by the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) in partnership with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), the symposium will take place in the Pelton Auditorium of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, on South Lake Union in Seattle. The MRF is a national nonprofit organization focused on melanoma research, education and advocacy. The SCCA is an alliance of the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC).

Coordinated and co-chaired by Dr. David Byrd, Professor of Surgery, UWMC, and Co-Director of the SCCA Melanoma Clinic, the symposium will feature Dr. John P. Fruehauf, Department of Medicine, UC Irvine, speaking on the Future Directions of Melanoma Research and Treatment. The Science part of the program will also include Dr. Byrd (When Lightning Strikes Twice
