Runners and walkers will help raise critical funding to fuel new treatments, education and advocacy for melanoma, while exploring some of the most iconic movie sets in history, including scenes from Jaws, Back to the Future and War of the Worlds.

The Angeles Clinic Foundation is hosting a symposium through a generous gift from the Farrah Fawcett Foundation. The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute was where Farrah Fawcett received her treatment for cancer and she held a special interest in circulating tumor cells and chemosensitivity testing. The symposium will bring together the world’s prominent researchers on this topic in order to discover all current methods of testing and evaluate where research can continue.
