We are proud to announce that the Nevus Merchandise store is now open, just in time for Christmas! Now you can get all your favorite Nevus stuff for the ones you love! Every time you buy an item from the store, you're helping to support Nevus Outreach.
Holiday greetings to everyone within sight of these words! As I write, it’s coming up on Thanksgiving and I am blogging on our web site about all the various facets of Nevus Outreach I am thankful for. Hooray for all those people: Families, Doctors, Scientists, Staff, Volunteers, and Supporters! There is no doubt that we would not be what we are without them. Without … you.
Greetings! I am Anne Houseal, the new Board Chair for Nevus Outreach. For 26 years, I served in the United States Air Force, primarily in the field of Logistics. I retired in 2009 and moved with my family to Alaska, The Last Frontier. My military career allowed me to serve a diverse population worldwide.
My son Leo Gordon was born at Mount Sinai Hospital on Halloween 2004 in New York City with a very large – and very lumpy – nevus on his back. It was no trick – and definitely not a treat – to visit three different hospitals during his first four days on earth.
Outreach Angels give automatic recurring gifts to Nevus Outreach and provide valuable funding for everything from phone bills to medical research. Their incremental donations transfer across automatically, quietly ensuring we will make a bigger and bigger difference in the lives of people affected by large nevi.
