We did it! Thanks to generous donations to Ride-On for Melanoma Research, a patient suite has been named in honor of Shawn Price on the cancer unit of CPMC’s Van Ness Hospital. This proud event also recognized Shawn’s birthday - he would have been 60 years old on September 6, 2023.
To honor Shawn’s competitive spirit, together we raised over $30,000 to benefit ground-breaking research at CPMC’s Center for Melanoma Research, with medical director Mohammed Kashani-Sabet, M.D. and team members who were involved with Shawn’s care including doctors Ari Baron and Brian Andrews. These funds help advance their collective work seeking new treatments for melanoma patients, such as these recent achievements:
- A new cancer treatment pathway that overcomes resistance to targeted melanoma therapy
- Personalized prognostic tools that help predict whether melanoma will spread to lymph nodes
