Ocular Melanoma (Uveal Melanoma) is a rare eye cancer that develops in the eye’s choroid, iris, ciliary body or the conjunctiva. A Cure In Sight™ was founded with the mission to provide patient services for ocular melanoma eye cancer patients. Services are provided through building public awareness, educating OM patients and their caregivers, funding on-going eye cancer research and, by financially helping OM patients find and pay for the treatments they need. A Cure In Sight™ is an IRS approved 501 C(3) organization, EIN 46-1274306.
While the initial tumor is nearly always treatable, about 50% of patients will develop fatal metastases in their lifetime. Currently, there is no cure for metastatic ocular melanoma. However, promising evidence exists that early detection, genetic analysis, targeted treatment, and integrative therapy may guarantee better results.
