Save Your Skin Foundation is a registered charity*. We deeply appreciate your generosity. 100% of all private donations we receive go directly to assisting patients meet their everyday needs during treatment in the form of uncovered drug therapy, transportation and accommodation while traveling to receive treatment, child care, lost wages and more.
Since 2006, the Foundation has worked to raise awareness of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers focusing on education, prevention and the need for improved patient care. Every year Save Your Skin provides thousands of Canadian skin cancer patients with information about drug trials and new treatment options. We also provide emotional and financial support.
In 2016, the Foundation also launched the I’m Living Proof initiative to provide hope to patients and support to the new wave of melanoma survivors beginning to emerge due to the success of trial treatments.
The Foundation continually participates in conferences, connects with doctors and researchers, and works with government to push the eradication of this disease forward.
As instances of melanoma continue to rise in Canada, the need for patient support and advocacy continues to grow. In the next year, the Foundation needs help to achieve the following goals:
