OM Nonprofit Organizations

I have a lot of mixed feelings about the charities which specialize in Uveal (Ocular) Melanoma in the USA.

None of them update their websites on a regular basis, and most have statistics about our cancer that are many years old. They take money from patients and their friends and families but in my personal opinion, there is a lack of transparency about how that money is actually spent to fulfill the charities stated mission.

So I am providing these resources with an additional caution to please review their tax returns before you make any donations. Make sure the way the money is spent meets with your idea of what research or patient education really means. They all have some good information but make sure to cross reference against other sources before you accept it as accurate.
