Thank you for joining Dr. Ellen Marmur in telling skin cancer to take a hike!  In July 2014 Dr. Marmur will take a 16,732 foot hike up the face of Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness and funds for the American Academy of Dermatology’s SPOT Skin Cancer™.

Your contribution supports the Academy's skin cancer education, awareness, and prevention programs.  Your gift will help save lives as we work together to build awareness about skin cancer - the most preventable form of cancer.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us at (847) 240-1409.

Thank you again for your generosity!

“My epiphany came last year when I had a flash of several things I must do before I can’t.  One was to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa while another was to educate others about a disease that has touched me – skin cancer.  Both of these ideas have come together in a personal goal I have set by creating “Skin Cancer – Take a Hike™” – where I will climb Mount Kilimanjaro with friends and use it to launch a campaign to raise $1 million for the American Academy of Dermatology’s  (AAD) SPOT Skin CancerTM initiative.”
-- Ellen S. Marmur, MD, FAAD
