    Did you know that 750,000 people are living with melanoma in this country and another 4 million first degree relatives are touched by this disease? Can you just imagine the impact of patients, survivors and relatives moving out into their communities, sharing their stories and delivering life saving messages about the importance of prevention and early detection? How empowering to those whose lives are forever changed with melanoma and how life changing is the message when someone is diagnosed early and cured of melanoma.

    MFNE is having their first "Call to Action Conference on Saturday, March 19 from 10 – 2 at the MIT Endicott House in Dedham. 

    Hosted by MFNE Executive Director Deb Girard, and Alan Geller, chair of the Foundation’s Medical Advisory Board, the conference will cover the following:

    ▪    If you are a melanoma survivor at any stage, a family member or have lost a loved one from melanoma, you can make a difference by sharing your story and delivering the important message about early detection and prevention to your community

    ▪    You can become part of our legislative initiative to ban indoor tanning

    ▪    Strategies and hands-on learning will be provided to help you create powerful presentations that communicate your passion about the importance of reducing the risk of melanoma

    This is an opportunity to find out how to make your voice heard and network with others who share your passion.
