We are a big melanoma warrior family, and togetherness is the foundation of our fight. The scourge of melanoma seems to touch everyone’s lives and having a hand in fighting it is a morale booster. American Melanoma Institute’s events recognize and honor those battling skin cancers, survivors, and those we have lost to cancer. No one’s journey with melanoma and non-melanoma cancers is easy; but we are together; and we will do our best to bring the science, research, community and the best care possible to beat melanoma.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer among Americans, with melanoma killing one person every hour. The American Melanoma Institute is a national physician-led nonprofit organization dedicated to skin cancer education and prevention, as well as supporting patients with skin cancer and assisting those in need in finding the most appropriate standard of care. Our division of scientific research focuses on developing innovative diagnostic and treatment methods for skin cancer.
