DC Wings of Hope
Melanoma strikes men and women of all ages, races and skin types.
Melanoma is not only the most serious type of skin cancer, it’s the fastest growing. Despite the magnitude of the disease, treatment options have remained limited for decades and research has been woefully underfunded. The DC Wings of Hope mission is to support the medical research for finding effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma as well as to educate patients and physicians about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma while advocating for the melanoma community to raise awareness of this disease and the need for a cure.

Over the years, since our founding, we have raised millions of dollars through various events, fundraisers and partners. Proceeds have been and will continue to be used to increase awareness through its association with organizations such as The Melanoma Research Foundation in addition to grants awarded to dedicated research scientists to help find a cure for Melanoma.
