14 Year Melanoma Survivor

Sep 02, 2010 2 Comments by

Tim Burriss, Melanoma Survivor and founder of the Stay Out of the Sun Foundation passionately promotes awareness of the dangers of sun exposure and melanoma research.  He discusses his work with us.

I am a very grateful 14 year melanoma survivor! 

In May 2006 I started the Stay Out of the Sun Run to benefit melanoma research and education at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  We have had great success and have contributed over $120,000 to the Mayo Clinic and have had over 2,700 participants in just 5 years.  

Mayo Clinic has used these proceeds for the 2009 Melanoma Patient Symposium, Melanoma CME course for the professional staff, and Mayo Proceedings publication of several research articles prepared by Mayo Clinic researchers.  We are in the process of wrapping up the 2010 event and starting the preparations for the 6th Annual Stay Out of the Sun Run on May 20, 2011.  For more information please visit our website at Stay Out of the Sun Foundation
