Education. Prevention. Support.
Founded in 1999, the mission of the Melanoma Foundation of New England is to reduce the incidence of melanoma in the New England region. We provide a variety of educational programs targeting the prevention and early detection of skin cancer and melanoma for both children and adults.
The Foundation also assists patients and their caregivers struggling with melanoma by offering support groups, educational programs, and Billy’s Buddies, a one-on-one patient advocacy and support program. These programs are all free.
A Medical Advisory Board and Board of Directors comprised of business people, health care professionals, and leading melanoma specialists provide guidance for the Foundation. Our fundraising events provide funding for education and support programs aimed at prevention, early detection and support.
