Earlier this week I posted about why I support the Ocular Melanoma Foundation with my photography. From this post I received some question from the post which I wanted to share with everyone.
Some additional information on OM can be found at the Ocular Melanoma Foundation. From the Introduction page it provides an overview of OM and more detailed information about the disease. I spent many hours on these pages when I was first diagnosed and it helped.
The main company which does genetic testing during the biopsy of the cancer cells is Castle Biosciences. They have developed a test working with one of the top doctors who treats OM. Information on this testing as well as more details on OM can be found on MyUvealMelanoma.com.
I mentioned Sean Swarner and his story while telling my story. Sean has written two books which can be found on Amazon if you would like to read more about his story. Keep Climbing: How I Beat Cancer and Reached the Top of the World as well as EVEREST: Being Unstoppable: Book One of the 7 Summits to Success Series.
Leverage Wines is the winery my friend Jason started where a portion of the proceeds goes to charitable organizations include the NBTF. At this time he is taking pre-orders for the 2017 Leverage Rosé.
Donations to the OMF can be made directly on their website if you are so inclined to help me in this effort.
Lastly thank you for all your feedback and support!
