René bore his final illness with great dignity and courage during 4 months of frustrating search for a diagnosis: Ocular Melanoma, is a rare form of eye cancer, that is distinctly different than melanoma of the skin. Due to its rarity, funding for research to find a cure is very limited at this time. It would be Rene's wishes that in lieu of flowers, you may wish to make a donation in his memory to:

Ocular Melanoma Foundation
1717 K Street #900
Washington DC, 20006

All donations will be directed towards research into this form of cancer.
