I started out as a client served. My husband found this great organization almost 4yrs ago while desperately searching for answers after receiving my stage IIIC diagnosis. Catherine spent many hours on the phone with us during our most difficult times and offered us accurate information and much needed support. I became involved in the forums when she started them, and have watched them grow into a place where people come from all over the world for support and accurate information. Although I'm currently doing well, she was the first person I turned to when I had my recur last summer. I know she works hard to keep informed of the latest developments. Great Job MIF! Shirley Z

I was diagnosed in 2006 with stage IIIC melanoma. My husband found this site and we were so impressed by the immediate outpouring of information and compassion by Catherine Poole. She answered her own hotline and stuck by us during every step of our battle. We know that we can receive accurate and reliable information because the cite is hon code approved. This means alot.

Melanoma International Foundation gives people a place to learn reliable information about their disease and talk about it with people who have been there. MIF also does a great deal of education and outreach with the public to try to prevent melanoma. I have found the site, its members and especially the staff helpful, caring, knowledgeable and understanding. MIF is a wonderful resource.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In referring me to products to help reduce the chance of melanoma returning. In discussing and learning about treatment options. In calming me down about my fears.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The simple fact that most people love the outdoors and it's difficult to get people to be careful with something they love.

They are real!

My husband was diagnosed with Melanoma in 2008; we didn't know where to turn. Our family doctor wanted surgery as soon as possible but we didn't know if the treatment was correct. I researched Melanoma and the Melanoma International Foundation came up, I don't know what made me call, but am glad that I did. The people at the foundation answered my questions and helped us find the right doctor for us. My husband is now under treatment and doing great, we thank our lucky stars everyday for the foundation.

Our first contact with Melanoma International Foundation was February 23, 2007, the day after our 32 year old daughter, Erica, learned (after four and one half years of her original surgery) the melanoma had spread to her liver. Three weeks before she and her husband had just run a marathon. She contacted MIF and they responded immediately offering encouragement in her contacting her original doctors who were experts in the caring of melanoma patients. From February 2007 through her treatments & surgeries & beyond MIF communicated with Erica,checking on how she was doing & if she needed any help, until her death in April 2008. Since then MIF has kept in contact with us, Erica's family. Erica's husband & friends ran in a relay marathon in memory of Erica raising funds for MIF. MIF's philosophy of prevention, early dection & awareness is extremely important as melanoma is on the increase, especially in the younger population. Our family participated in an MIF sponsored event just one year after Erica's death where an award was given in her name. The staff of many volunteers, melanoma survivors, persons being treated with melanoma, & family members were all very gracious & we felt like we had known those we met for years, not just a few hours. MIF has supported our other daughter as she gives talks on Safe From the Sun Awareness with sharing of their literature & handouts on melanoma. We have been extremely pleased with MIF in the way they kept up with our daughter & now our family without any pressure for donations. Thank you MIF!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The way they reached out to my daughter during her illness & now toher family after her death.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

gracious, informative, caring & very supportive.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

promote prevention , detection & cure!

Ways to make it better...

I might have been aware of the organization in September of 2002.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the public to be more aware of prevention & early detection & make each person be an advocate for their own health.

One thing I'd also say is that...

be your own advocate & insist on medical attention for any changes in/of your skin.

I received a diagnosis of stage 1V melanoma and had no idea where to turn for help. I saw the MIF site and Catherine's offer to help if anyone had any questions. I emailed her a question about finding a Doctor, and within 5 minutes(I swear), she had responded with 2 names, one of whom is now my oncologist at Memorial Sloan.
