Melanoma March is the perfect opportunity to help raise awareness and enable much needed research to be undertaken to move closer to a cure.
Melanoma March is in its eighth year and is now Melanoma Institute Australia’s major annual fundraising campaign to support Melanoma research. Research is making a huge difference with breakthroughs, tripling the life expectancy for advanced Melanoma patients however more needs to be done.
In Australia 1 in 14 men and 1 in 24 women will be diagnosed with melanoma sometime in their life. Melanoma is often referred to as Australia’s national cancer. Melanoma is the most common cancer in young Australians aged between 15 and 39 years old and kills more young Australians between the ages of 20 and 39 years old than any other single cancer.
With statistics like these it is so important to get on board this fund raiser and ‘March to find a cure’.
