Melanoma strikes men and women of all ages, all races and all skin types.

Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, is the fastest growing cancer in the United States and worldwide. Despite the magnitude of the disease treatment options for patients have been limited for more than two decades, and melanoma research remains woefully underfunded. The DC Wings of Hope mission is to support the medical RESEARCH for finding effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma; to EDUCATE patients and physicians about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma; and to act as an ADVOCATE for the melanoma community to raise awareness of this disease the need for a cure.
