Hamilton Jewelry Chicago offers support for Melanoma Research by auctioning off beautiful, custom jewelry for the Wings of Hope Third Annual Gala again! One-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, custom designed and created by Kailee Swift of Hamilton Jewelry Chicago, were auctioned off in order to raise money in support of Melanoma Research to continue the fight against this devastating and horrible disease. Kailee is a fervent supporter of many philanthropic events throughout Chicago that help fight disease, cure people, and support the loved ones of those lost over the years to these terrible medical mysteries. The Wings of Hope Third Annual Gala for Melanoma Research was a huge success and Hamilton Jewelry Chicago was glad to be a part of it.

Each year, the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) hosts Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas in cities across the United States. Each gala is an opportunity to recognize a leader in the local medical community with the Humanitarian Award. This individual is committed to fighting melanoma through exemplary patient care, cutting-edge research or scientific leadership. The event is also an opportunity to recognize brave melanoma patients and present them with Courage Awards. These awards are given to individuals who have shown tremendous strength in their personal battles with cutaneous, ocular, mucosal or pediatric melanoma.
In 2017, the MRF will host Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas in Chicago, Denver, New York and San Francisco. If you have any questions regarding the Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas or you would like to sponsor an event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The funds raised at the Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas support melanoma research, education, and advocacy. The MRF provides essential educational programming to newly diagnosed patients, support materials for caregivers and free tools to the public on melanoma prevention and early detection through the #GetNaked and #EyeGetDilated awareness campaigns. In addition, the MRF awards over a million dollars each year to medical institutions across the United States to find better treatments for cutaneous, ocular, mucosal and pediatric melanoma.
