​​In honor of my sister, I developed this website to help patients and their families with their search for accurate information and truly useful resources relating to ocular melanoma.

As healthcare professionals, my sister and I always believed strongly in patient empowerment and informed decision making, of which gaining knowledge and finding additional support are critical pieces. We and our families put these actions to good use, along with hope and perseverance, during her courageous battle with metastatic ocular melanoma.

I would also like this website to be a place of encouragement. I hope that by using the links to organizations, educational materials, clinical trials, medical journals, online forums, and other assistance compiled here, you are heartened by the continuing work being done in ocular melanoma support and research.​

Wishing everyone strength and healing,
​Erica Barrett, MOT, MBA
