A Cure In Sight would like to welcome Tania Herfurth of Small White Cat Design to our family. Tania will bring her knowledge and many years of experience at Small White Cat Designs to our Products and Development department. Tania will be creating new and exciting products as well as working on our social media and website support. Tania’s first project with ACIS was the development of the new Pirate T-Shirt that has been added to our product line. Tania is an Ocular melanoma survivor and is very active in the OM community. Please keep an eye out for more new products and designs coming soon!
A Cure In Sight™ is a not-for-profit organization founded to raise ocular melanoma awareness and to help those with 0cular melanoma find and pay for the treatments that they need.
Ocular melanoma is a rare eye cancer that develops in the melanocytes of the eye’s choroid, iris or ciliary body. While the initial tumor is nearly always treatable, about 50% of patients will develop fatal metastases.
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.
Welcome! Please take a minute to “look” around our site. We have loads of ocular melanoma awareness resources and many options for you to help us with our fundraising efforts.
The right side of this website features our past posts, comments from visitors like you, and links to external resources… even our favorite blogs!
We greatly appreciate your interest and look forward to hearing more from you!
