‘It can affect anyone’: Raising funds and awareness for Melanoma March
Melanoma March celebrates the Melanoma Institute Australia’s major annual fundraising campaign and brings together patients, families and local communities to raise awareness and funds.
With Australia having some of the highest melanoma rates in the world, the march saves lives and aims to reach a goal of zero deaths.
Co-Medical Directors from Melanoma Institute Australia Professor Georgina Long and Professor Richard Scolyer told Ray Hadley melanoma does not discriminate.
“It’s a major public health problem,” said Professor Richard Scolyer.
“Melanoma is Australia’s national cancer.”
Ms Long said the march has caused people to get the right help.
“It’s impacted a lot of other cancers now taking on the treatments we use on melanoma.”
