Your donation will help a person with ocular melanoma who is having financial difficulty due to their diagnosis and help us to fund on going research to find both eye and life saving treatments. Currently there is no cure for ocular melanoma once it spreads to other organs. We hope to change this by supporting the research community and fund worthy projects that need additional funds.

You can double your donation by asking your employer to match your donations to A Cure In Sight.  Your donation is tax deductible, as the laws allow, as we are an IRS approved non profit EIN# 46-1274306.

Thank you for supporting ocular melanoma and A Cure In Sight!

ACIS was able to launch a scientific research project with Harbour Laboratory at Bascom Palmer, Miami. Phase One of the research is complete, with findings pointing to significant differences between “variants” of the two mutations believed to be the initiating mutations leading to Ocular Melanoma, GNAQ and GNA11. Now in the second phase, the lab will be using a new approach to identify candidate therapeutic targets. More information on this trial should be out in early 2020 when a phase 2 study will open and more funding will be needed. With your partnership, we can invest in more research to hopefully see A Cure In Sight.


Your donation will help a person with ocular melanoma who is having financial difficulty due to their diagnosis. By supporting our general fund, you allow us to continue operating so that we can have A Cure In Sight. A Cure In Sight is an all volunteer organization and does not pay salaries or high overhead.

To date, ACIS has provided over $129,868 direct to provider medical and living expense payments benefiting 197 patients. With your help, we can continue to assist patients with their treatment costs and living expenses.
