Patient Support

For those living with melanoma, support can be vital to the healing process.

Melanoma Patient Support Group Webinars

All patients, survivors, family members, and caregivers are invited to join our informal monthly webinars to connect with other patients and survivors across Canada. Held on the evening of the first Thursday of every month, these webinars can be accessed by phone or computer, and are open discussions about life after melanoma diagnosis.

Join us anytime:  Thurs, May 3, 2018 |  Thurs, June 7, 2018 | Thurs, July 5, 2018

5pm PT | 8pm ET | 9pm AT

We know the importance of having a good support network during difficult times. This is why we decided to organize a recurring support group by webinar. Although melanoma patients and survivors are located all over Canada, these webinars will allow them to talk to others going through similar experiences from the comfort of their own home.  Founder Kathy Barnard will be in attendance, along with other members of the SYSF team. Whether you’re a patient or a caregiver, we hope that you will take part in this virtual discussion around melanoma, treatments, and hope.  To login or dial-in, please see details below:

Save Your Skin Foundation is committed to providing one-on-one support through Founder Kathy Barnard. We also provide support from other patients and survivors through our initiative “I’m Living Proof”

I’m Living Proof – Surviving Melanoma

The term ‘survivor’ can mean different things to different people. For some, a survivor may have completed active treatment and is free from any signs of melanoma. For others, the term may refer to anyone who has been diagnosed with melanoma.

Save Your Skin Foundation wishes to bring hope and support to all those newly diagnosed, currently undergoing treatment, or to those “in remission” or referred to as “NED” – with no evidence of disease. This website focuses on those individuals that have generally completed active treatment and that are in remission or on maintenance therapy; however, we invite all melanoma patients, at any stage, to get in touch.

 

Hand in hand, we fight melanoma together.

 

We are here to help. Please call us at 1-800-460-5832 or email kathy@saveyourskin.ca.

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.
