Welcome MCC Patients and Friends
Find out how you can make a difference in Merkel cell carcinoma:
YOU MATTER - We are working to find a cure to MCC. We are looking for individuals with MCC and those who are immediate relatives to someone diagnosed with MCC who would like to be involved in our research studies. If you are interested in helping us, please contact Dr. Yuan Chang at 412-623-7716 or email@example.com.
YOUR VOICE MATTERS - If you or a family member is affected by cancer, particularly Merkel cell carcinoma, then you have a very poignant message to give to your congressman about the need to support all forms of nonmilitary biomedical research in the US, including basic, translational, and applied research. If you have not done so already, write to them and also visit the American Cancer Society Advocacy webpage.
Here's an update on how YOU have been helping: November 2009 Update
Support - A Merkel cell carcinoma support group can be found here.
Donations – Donations for research may be sent to the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI) to support Merkel Cell Carcinoma Research.
