The Melanoma Action Coalition was established in 2014 by leaders of seven community-based foundations focused on increasing awareness about melanoma, providing education about sun safety, and raising money for melanoma research. Originally based in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, we have since grown to include organizations and individuals from throughout the United States and Canada. We continue to welcome new members.
The mission of the Melanoma Action Coalition is to welcome non-profit organizations and individual supporters to work together in a national network to educate, raise awareness, advocate, and provide mutual support.
Our goals for 2017
Continue to bring together melanoma organizations for collaboration, information and resource sharing, and support
Strengthen the message about skin cancer prevention, especially as it affects melanoma
Organize a joint awareness event for Melanoma Awareness Month
Advocate for public policies that promote the goals of prevention, early detection, patient support, and research to find a cure
Partner with the medical and research communities as well as with other organizations who are working to help defeat melanoma.
