Who we are
Around 15,900 people are diagnosed with melanoma cancer every year. It is the most serious form of skin cancer and the fifth most common cancer amongst teenagers and young adults.
Melanoma Focus is the main national charity for melanoma. We are also a professional organisation for melanoma nurses, clinicians, scientists and others working in the healthcare sector.
We raise funds so that we can commission and fund innovative scientific research into the causes and treatment of the disease while providing support and information for patients, carers and healthcare professionals.
