It’s hard not to love the apparel company, Love Your Melon. Why? Because they donate 50% of their proceeds to nonprofit partners (to date over $2.5 million) and they have supported CureSearch and our fight against children’s cancer since 2015.
Then last month, at our 2017 Catapult Summit, in front of 80 of the most innovative minds in science, drug development, advocacy, and health funding, Love Your Melon committed to fund $366,000 towards the Catapult Ignition Project, the first project in the Catapult pipeline.

That’s $366,000 to catapult the best research out of the lab and into clinical trials and drug development, the point where it actually reaches children.
That’s $366,000 to help CureSearch get better, less toxic treatments to children with cancer…NOW.
That’s a pretty big deal.
Charles Carlisle, Operations Director, and Alex Meysman, Event and Partnership Director, both from Love Your Melon, had this to say about the event:
“It was an incredibly powerful experience to be in the room with key stakeholders representing the many different sides of pediatric cancer. We are thrilled to be involved in bringing the world’s brightest minds together to innovate and move new pediatric treatments to market. We are confident that Catapult will make an immediate and significant difference in the lives of children and families battling cancer in the United States and beyond.”
This generous gift further solidifies Love Your Melon’s commitment to being a business that not only supports children undergoing treatment for children’s cancer, but one that also takes on an active role in creating a better future for them.
We’re beyond grateful for Love Your Melon’s continued support of CureSearch, and we can’t wait to see how together, we can change the future for children with cancer.
