Welcome to the oldest interactive online community for melanoma patients. Once you have been touched by melanoma—either as a patient, family member or friend of a patient—you become part of a community. Over the years, tens of thousands of people have turned to the bulletin board for information, support, comfort, and friendship. Now that you have joined this network, we hope you will find this a safe place to share your hopes and fears, to ask questions and to offer suggestions to others.    Through your participation in this group you can find the tools you need to help you though your journey with melanoma, and the friends who can make your journey more bearable.

To learn how to use the bulletin board and the new features, please see the Bulletin Board FAQs

Today, the bulletin board was upgraded to a new platform. If you are looking for your posts, please see the archived bulletin board.
