Our Mission

Outpacing Melanoma is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to funding research for and increasing awareness of melanoma by promoting prevention, screening and early detection throughout the Kansas City region. Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, is an often-neglected disease. Outpacing Melanoma is dedicated to fighting this disease - every step of the way.

The purpose of our mission is to support the Richard A. Klover Melanoma Fund, which benefits The University of Kansas Cancer Center and our local community.
