 In memory of Amy Robinson


Miles Against Melanoma NC was created in honor of my sister, Amy Jo Robinson. She lost her life much too young to melanoma. Amy Jo Ross Robinson was first diagnosed with melanoma when she was just a junior in high school, after a biopsy was performed on a mole she had removed. She had surgery to remove the lymph nodes from the surrounding area and was in remission for over 10 years until it came back in her lungs and eventually took her life. Amy was only 30 years old when she died. Miles Against Melanoma NC is dedicated to raising the public’s awareness of melanoma and funds for its research so no one else will have to suffer like Amy. Thank you so much for your support!


Please consider participating, volunteering, or sponsoring our event. Proceeds will benefit the Levine Cancer Institute and other initiatives to increase the public’s awareness of melanoma and the damaging effects of the sun and tanning beds.
