Together We Can

The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) Advocacy Program is a platform for those affected by melanoma to share their voice and transform melanoma care. Whether you are a patient, caregiver, survivor, healthcare professional or partner, YOU play a critical role in the advancement of better outcomes for the 1.3 million Americans living with melanoma and their loved ones.

Our Impact

Since 2009, the MRF has worked with advocates across the country on the local, state and federal level, providing support to those living with and surviving melanoma, raising public awareness of the disease, advancing research and improving the quality of care and outcomes for the millions of Americans impacted by melanoma.


Advocacy Priorities

While the MRF’s policy and advocacy efforts are primarily focused around our priority issues below, the MRF is aware there are additional policy initiatives that impact the melanoma community and is dedicated to working towards better outcomes and long-term survivorship for melanoma patients and their care partners.
