Miles Against Melanoma is a national organization that began in 2010 in St. Louis, Missouri. In 2014, Ashley Watts and Megan Collins started a chapter in Oklahoma City after their sister, Maddy Watts, died of stage IV melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer. While the death of their sister gives them heavy hearts, Megan and Ashley recognize a need to educate the Oklahoma community about skin cancer prevention and the importance of early detection.
Miles Against Melanoma OK provides funding for awareness, education, advocacy and research for skin cancer, melanoma and cancers related to melanoma.
The Miles Against Melanoma OK Board of Directors is comprised solely of volunteers meaning 100% of money raised is funneled back into the organization's mission to serve the community.
MAMOK is a 501(c)3.
