Swingle Collins at Marit Liv Peterson Fund for Melanoma Research Golf Tournament
Longtime friend and client of Swingle Collins, Chris Crosby Co-Chaired the Marit Liv Peterson Fund for Melanoma Research Golf Tournament on October 16th in honor of his 8 year old granddaughter who celebrated her 6th year of being cancer free. The Marit Peterson Fund for Melanoma Research is the single largest and highest quality melanoma study of its kind in the world and supports research of the inherited genome for melanoma in the Melanoma and Skin Center at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. Unlike other charitable funds, 100% of each and every dollar raised for the Marit Peterson Fund goes directly to support melanoma research.
The Marit Peterson Fund for Melanoma Research, along with additional support from the National Cancer Institute’s SPORE Program (Specialized Programs of Research Excellence) and the National Institute of Health’s CIDR Program (Center for Inherited Disease Research) has grown into a $10 million dollar global study. It represents the single largest and highest quality melanoma study of its kind in the world!
Swingle Collins is proud to sponsor such a great event for such a wonderful family.
