Many melanoma patients cannot access the treatment they need where they live, and must travel to another city or province every 2-3 weeks to receive life-saving treatment. For some the treatment is covered, for others it is not, but most of these patients are left to pay for those travel expenses out-of-pocket.
Your donation can mean a taxi fare, a plane ticket, a night in a hotel, gas money, lost wages, or child care for a melanoma patient in need.
Help melanoma patients focus on their cancer battle, and not their finances.
Save Your Skin Foundation is a Canadian non-profit registered charity, founded by Vancouver resident and melanoma survivor Kathleen Barnard. While her cancer treatments have finished, the battle with melanoma is not over for Kathleen. Today, the Save Your Skin Foundation works with Canadian government stakeholders to change federal and provincial policy and with skin cancer medical professionals to write patient policy guidelines, while still providing melanoma patients with the one-on-one support Kathleen received during her own treatments.
