How to Help

Memorial Giving

Give in Memory of a Loved One

Losing a loved one to melanoma is not easy. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. In 2024, over 200,300 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with melanoma, and approximately 8,290 Americans are expected to die from melanoma in 2024. Through research, education and advocacy efforts the Melanoma Research Foundation is making strides to help find a cure.


What are the benefits of setting up an online memorial page?

  • You can make a custom page for your family and friends to use to donate in memory of your loved one
  • With this custom page you will be able to keep track of who donated, for how much and family & friends will be able to leave comments or personal messages with each donation
  • All proceeds will benefit and come directly to the Melanoma Research Foundation
  • You will also be able to customize the page with pictures and a story as to why you created the page
