MIF is an awesome foundation that I stumbled upon after my brother died from melanoma in 2005. It has wonderful info., feedback, and knowledgeable links.I think it should be given an award.

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

educate a lot of children and teachers at schools.

MIF is a wonderful resource for those dealing with Melanoma. There is always a friendly, knowledgeable and understanding person standing by. To educate helps ease fears when dealing with a stressful situation such as a cancer diagnosis and the service that MIF provides is invaluable. Thanks for all you do!

The Great!

education. Knowledge is power. With a husband facing a Melanoma diagnosis learning everything I could about Melanoma became my obsession. This knowlege provided by MIF and its members helped me face the fears and be strong for my husband.

MIF was a wealth of info during my Brother's diagnosis, treatment and ultimate death, ocurring from Melanoma. I rec'd personal, one on one help, concerning many issues, that helped our family tremendously during this sad and difficult time. I continue to rec emails and stay current on this deadly disease, which seems to be on the increase by leaps and bounds. My sincere thanks to all of those who keep this nonprofit going!!

The Great!

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

the current and abundant info regarding Melanoma that is available to everyone.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do whatever necessary to get the info to the general public, that over exposure to the sun can kill you and to wear sunscreen!

More feedback...

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

Seeing the positive results in many patients who have been diagnosed with this disease and are beating it!

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

Many over the course of 2 years by phone and email.

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

start a mass campaign to, schools, daycares, etc, and to educate the general public on the necessary preventives.FDA and US govt should regulate pharmaseutical companies that make sunscreens and not allow to decieve the public by false statments.

Ways to make it better...

the live email conversation would have continued.

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

the huge increase in the number of melanoma cases each year and the younger generation who basically ignores the fact that the sun is the only reason people die from melanoma.

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

Us Baby Boomers are paying the price for fun in the sun years ago, and we should do everyting in our power to educate the public aganist over exposure to the sun and that tanning beds should be oulawed!

When I was first diagnosed with Melanoma, I searched the internet for answers and only got more confused and scared. Then I came upon the Melanoma International Foundation. All my uncertainty and questions were answered in a timely manner and the outpouring of support from other members really helped me through this most difficult time. This site is truly an asset and it gave me the insight and guidance to battle this disease.

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

the support I received from the site and other members really helped me get through the first few months after being diagnosed. I was so scared and confused and hearing that other people experienced the same emotions was invaluable to me.
