The Shannon J. Shaw Memorial Fund hosts and sponsors many events and activities every year throughout New Mexico.  Our Annual Advocacy Seminars and Memorial Roping events, produced by the volunteer staff, are especially distinct. Reaching out to different professions and the public across the State of New Mexico, the advocacy seminars offer up to date & valuable information, as well as an opportunity for attorneys and healthcare professionals to receive continuing education credits, provided by speakers from a multitude of backgrounds. The Memorial Roping Event is typically held the same weekend of the seminar or a couple of weeks after the seminar in Carlsbad, NM and is always a great time. The team roping event is funded by sponsorship's and brings ropers from around the surrounding areas to compete and win some great prizes.

You can join us for the 4th Annual Advocacy for Cancer Patients Seminar, Click Here for more details.

Aside from our Annual Events, we are always searching for other ways to reach out and educate our local communities about the early detection, treatment and prevention of melanoma.
