 All of the proceeds from Safe from the Sun benefit the Melanoma International Foundation’s Patient Services Program. This program provides one-on-one support to those facing a melanoma diagnosis, as well as their loved ones. From help understanding pathology to providing travel scholarships to clinical trials, our patient navigator seeks to understand and overcome the obstacles standing between the patient and the best treatment possible. It is an exciting time in the melanoma landscape, with new treatments being developed all the time. For the first time in decades, options are available for patients to live longer, better lives and it is our goal to help them do just that.

Here is an example of how MIF navigates patients:

“This site is just the best. When I was first diagnosed with Melanoma I had so many questions and getting so few answers with any of the Dr’s. This site is a wealth of information and support for everyone. If you’re ever feeling down there is always someone to help you through the dark days. Its the tops.”
– Magenta

“You have the experience, the expert medical melanoma sources and the dedication that brings credence to the patient perspective.”
– Roxanne


Participants Are Saying …

I felt a sense of love and support among the participants in the walk. At some spots, the venue allowed for one to view the number of participants — which was encouraging and exciting based on the growth of the event! Made me proud to be a participant for several years.
