May is Melanoma Awareness Month. Kelly Kroll of Ambler PA has set up the “Bonnie Kroll Melanoma Memorial Fund” in honor of her mother who died in 2001 from uveal melanoma. The fund has raised over $150,000 to support research at the the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and the Kimmel Cancer Center of Thomas Jefferson University. Kelly marked the 10th anniversary of the fund by organizing a special Melanoma Awareness night with the Philadelphia Phillies. Jefferson Doctors participated in the attached video and also were present to throw out the first pitch.
