Saving lives through education

Melanoma is a common but serious skin cancer which, if not removed early, may spread internally and become fatal.

The good news is that melanoma is easy to detect yourself at an early stage while it is thin and is curable by simple, painless removal in an outpatient setting. All it takes is a ten-minute monthly skin check. This site shows you how to check your skin, what to look for, and how to decrease your risk of developing melanoma.
