We are about saving lives. Melanoma is a fast moving disease that, if left untreated, can kill in a matter of months. MHN is about helping patients find help fast. We have developed unique technology to help patients find trials with our TrialFinder. For advanced stages of melanoma, it is key to find a compatible trial quickly. Your contribution goes directly to the technology of matching patients with trials and with finding cures to the disease. Help us help others. Thank you!

MHN is a non-profit organization established to bring hope, education and direct personal support to patients diagnosed with melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. We are especially interested in finding patients affected by the advanced stages of melanoma.

We intend to support research, increase patient awareness of clinical trials, and help patients and their primary physicians find the appropriate trials for their particular stage of disease. We also intend to provide a central place for melanoma centers across the country to come to collaborate data and to update and educate their staff.

The Melanoma Hope Network (MHN) is built around an internet web site designed to offer immediate user-friendly help to patients and their families, and bring their primary physicians, researchers, and proprietary drug treatment developers together to match available treatments to specific diagnosed cases.

Please read about our mission to provide hope and help against melanoma. 

Thank you for helping us by telling anyone you know with melanoma about the MHN network.

MIKE NITE!

A good time for a good cause!

A benefit for Mike Kremer

Mike Kremer, son of Luke and Marian Kremer, is a native of Loose Creek who now lives in St. Louis.  In the spring of 2009, Mike was diagnosed with melanoma cancer and was admitted to the National Institute of Health in MD for clinical trials. Things were good until May 2010 when a tumor was discovered around a salivary gland in his neck. In Jun 2010 this tumor was removed and radiation treatment began. Then in Dec 2011 another tumor was found in his liver so Mike spent the holidays doing inpatient treatments in MD.

Despite all the extensive treatments, another new tumor was found on Mike’s spleen in Feb 2012. He decided this time to stay in St. Louis for his treatment. All the treatments have taken a toll on him so he had to take a

leave of absence from his job in Apr 2012. In May 2012 melanoma was discovered in his shoulder and found to have grown in his liver and spleen. Today, Mike is 34 and continues his fight with a great amount of faith and hope. This benefit is to help support Mike and his family in that fight. So please join us to help give them that support!

"There is a lot of hope for the future in the field of melanoma treatment.  First, most patients are cured.  Second, our treatments with more advanced disease are improving, but are still not good enough.  Third, there are several more exciting strategies on the horizon -- more specific, less toxic, maybe, more effective.  More than anything else, though, we need to empower the patients and families to locate melanoma doctors, treatments, and clincal trials that are right for them, before it is too late.  This is our vision for the Melanoma Hope Network.
