This is a great organization. When my sister-in-law was diagnosed with Melanoma, I directed her immediately to the MIF for it's helpful information, support, and resource guides.

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!

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.
