Never Giving Up: Supporting Ocular Melanoma Research and ETRF in 2020

AmpliVox CEO Don Roth has pledged to match the first $500 in donations that are made in the month of January 2020 to the "Ocular Melanoma Research: In Memory of Nancy Roth" GoFundMe fundraiser.

On September 4, 2018, Nancy Roth lost her six-year battle with ocular melanoma. This rare disease, which occurs in 2,000 adults each year, currently has no cure in its metastatic form.

In memory of his wife Nancy, Don has been raising funds to help support research and treatment of ocular melanoma.

Where Do Your Donations Go?

Donations will go to the Eye Tumor Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization that not only provided tremendous counsel and care to Nancy during her battle, but is also devoted to learn more about eye cancers and tumors in an effort to win the struggle for life and sight.

- Supporting national research into the immunology of how cancerous ocular cells metastasize (spread to other parts of the body)

- Supporting local research on the prevention and treatment ocular oncology under the direction of Dr. Bruce Brockstein at Northshore Health System in the Chicago area.

Through these efforts, it is hoped to relieve the suffering – and prevent premature deaths -- of current and future eye cancer patients. Your generous donations are greatly appreciated.

Dr. Carol Shields and her staff at the Eye Tumor Research Foundation where 100% of your Donations for Nancy are used for eye cancer research.
