Founded in October 2006, the Philip A. Bryant Melanoma Foundation serves as a means of preserving the spirit and memory of Phil Bryant the son, brother, nephew, cousin, and friend who passed away September 7, 2006 from complications of melanoma.
The concept of an enduring remembrance through community service was created by Phil’s parents, Stan and Veronica Bryant, who courageously serve as President and Vice President of the Foundation. Within the Foundation are individual committees largely comprised of extended family, friends, and supportive volunteers who find comfort through service to the community in Phil’s name. Meetings are held to discuss fundraisers, melanoma awareness activities, and plans for future projects as members share in each other’s company over dinner. The Foundation graciously welcomes both additional support from interested individuals and commitment of sponsors / donors to fund Foundation endeavors to continue this mission of love.
