Every year Save Your Skin Foundation provides hundreds of Canadians with melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancer, and ocular melanoma with information about drug trials and new treatment options. We collaborate with health technology assessment and government bodies to advocate for timely and equal access to new treatments.

SYSF also provides emotional and financial support to patients who must travel to and from life-saving treatments, often in other provinces. The flights, taxis and hotels for each trip can cost over $1,500. This adds up to $20,000 a year. These patients need your help.

Help Save Your Skin Foundation by becoming a ‘Guardian Angel’ for patients in need. Sign up as a monthly donor and be recognized as one of our ‘Guardian Angels’.


Making awareness and education available is crucial. 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.
