Flash Mob for Melanoma Research at CHS

My son, Terrance, with a group of kids in a film class at Carmel High School, coordinated a flash mob. They got this all going to get the kids at school to come to a Neon Dance to help raise money for Melanoma Research. The kids were originally going to have this 'flash mob' in a mall in Indianapolis . . . However, he checked with the security at the mall and they said. . . in no uncertain terms . . . NO! So, the kids decided they would do it at school . . . and they did!


Terrance began this fundraiser for Melanoma research because his mother died of Melanoma about a year and a half ago. This first video gives some of the background of what the kids came up with . . . and the reasons that it came about at all. Check it out . . .



And . . . without further hesitation . . . the final show!



If you would like to donate to this worthy cause, I will make sure that your money gets to these awesome kids (many of whom attended College Wood Elementary School . . . where I proudly teach) so they can make a donation to Melanoma research . . . the kids of the world . . . the kids whose lives we have touched . . . our future.


(Please do not feel like you need to donate . . . only if you'd like . . . and there is no set amount!)


Thank you!

  8. Melanoma is a skin disease. Cancerous cells are produced in the melanocytes, cells that are responsible for skin color. Melanocytes, in the skin, are also found in other parts of the body, like the eyes. A majority of documented melanoma infection originates in the skin. It is a skin cancer. Melanoma is also known as malignant melanoma or cutaneous melanoma. It is curable, but an early diagnosis and treatment is very important.
