AIM at Melanoma, a non-profit organization dedicated to the research, outreach and prevention of Melanoma, has awarded a $90,000 research grant to MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC).

“West University resident Judy Sager, AIM Houston Chapter President, and Jean Schlipmann, AIM CoFounder, presented Dr. Patrick Hwu and the Melanoma Department at MDACC a check for $90,000 to support melanoma research.”

This is very exciting news for AIM and the MDACC! AIM and the MD Anderson Cancer Center have partnered together during a Houston AIM for the Cure Melanoma Fun Run and Walk in 2011. I am proud to say that UV Skinz is also a sponsor to the AIM for a Cure Walk/Runs as well as a close ally in the fight against Melanoma.

The MDACC will use the the grant “to support the ongoing research goals of MelCore.”
