FRED HUTCHINSON CANCER RESEARCH CENTER FOUNDATION
June 9, 2011

Since I was diagnosed with Melanoma five years ago I have donated to the Melanoma Research Foundation in WA, DC or to Fred Hutch, in Seattle, WA.) with a directive for the money to go towards Melanoma research.

I attended the Melanoma Symposium at Fred Hutch in Seattle in May and found the information a bit overwhelming and over my head. However, I did enjoy the last panel of Melanoma survivors who shared their experiences with us.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Receiving very informative e-mails and mailings sharing the latest in research.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not lead us to believe that Fred Hutch is the only place to receive quality care for Melanoma. I go to Dr. Richard McGee at Puget Sound Cancer Care in Edmonds, WA. and have been very pleased with the care there. Also, I would hightly encourage a "buddy" system where survivors (after receiving some kind of training) could help people who have been newly diagnosed.

MY ROLE:
Donor & Other than donate money I have not done anything for the foundation.
