The Melanoma Action Coalition was formally launched today! Read our first press release:
August 4, 2015…The Melanoma Action Coalition (MAC) announced its formation today to mobilize melanoma foundations and the community at large into a cohesive organization to combat melanoma through prevention, awareness and research.

All of MAC’s founding members have suffered a loss or been touched by this horrific disease, melanoma. From this grief has emerged a passion to prevent others from going through the same tragedy. Melanoma patients and their families are invited to join our community to help defeat melanoma. The medical community, business community, and media are also asked to join our fight.
Watch out melanoma, we are coming to get you!
