The Melanoma Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization devoted to saving lives from melanoma, a common skin cancer that is often deadly unless detected early before there are any symptoms.

The Melanoma Education Foundation saves lives by promoting greater awareness of melanoma and the importance of early self-detection.

The Foundation evolved from a father’s website tribute to his son, Dan Fine of Peabody, who died of melanoma in 1998 at the age of 26.

The Foundation increases awareness of melanoma three ways:

By training high school and middle school health educators and providing them with student materials and lesson plans.

By providing complete information about early self-detection and prevention of melanoma in a user-friendly website.

By conducting talks and facial skin analyzer screenings for area organizations 
and businesses.

The Melanoma Education Foundation is devoted to educational purposes only and is not engaged 
in rendering medical advice or professional services.

The Foundation has no fundraising or administrative salaries; these activities are provided on a voluntary basis.

Information provided by the Foundation 
should not be used for diagnosing or treating a skin problem or disease. It is not a substitute 
for professional care.

If you have or suspect you have a skin problem you should consult 
a dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or other professional healthcare provider.
