If you reside in Colorado, you live in one of the sunniest locations in the United States, where year round the sun is shining during daylight hours more than 70% of the time. Sun damage and skin cancer are very real concerns in the Mile High City. Your risk of Melanoma is also higher here. Prevention, protection and early detection are absolutely essential.
Melanoma is the deadliest type of skin cancer. Anyone can get melanoma. When found early and treated, the cure rate is nearly 100%. At the Asarch Center for Dermatology, Laser & Mohs Surgery, we are dedicated to early detection and Melanoma research to cure this deadly skin cancer.
Dr. Richard Asarch, M.D., founder of the Asarch Center for Dermatology and Laser Skin Rejuvenation and Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the University Of Colorado School Of Medicine with the MRF’s Humanitarian Award.
The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) is the largest independent non-profit organization devoted to melanoma. Committed to the support of medical research in finding effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma, the MRF also educates patients, caregivers and physicians about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma.
The MRF is also an active advocate for the melanoma community, helping to raise awareness of this disease and the need for a cure. At the Asarch Center, we strongly support this effort.
