Support Groups

Well informed and well supported patients live longer, better lives.

Finding a support system is an important step throughout your journey with melanoma. The MRF is working on a comprehensive list of melanoma support groups which will be posted here soon. In the meantime, if you know of a melanoma-specific support group, please email with the group details so we can add it to the list.

Online Patient Forum

Join MPIP, the MRF’s Melanoma Patients Information Page, an active, peer-to-peer, online bulletin board for melanoma patients and caregivers.

Online Support Communities

In partnership with HealthUnlocked, the MRF has launched an online support community for those affected by melanoma. There are currently groups for young adults with melanoma as well as melanoma caregivers, with more groups planned in the near future.

Ocular Melanoma Support Groups

The MRF’s CURE OM team has partnered with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to offer virtual support groups for ocular melanoma patients.
