Share Your Melanoma Story

Melanoma doesn’t affect only the person with the illness. It affects family members and friends as well.  During your melanoma journey, you have learned lessons of endurance, strength, and optimism.

Whether you are a current patient, survivor, family member, caregiver, volunteer, etc., we want to hear about your experience and share your courage and strength with the melanoma community.

Sharing this journey with others will have many benefits, from basic support and advice to life-preserving perspectives. Your story can give others hope. If you’re interested in sharing your journey, please complete the form below. Please submit a photo (under image) as well.

Please refrain from promoting a product, drug, or company. Any promotional information will be removed before your story is published. * Please note that by submitting your story and photo, you are giving AIM at Melanoma permission to edit and use these materials to be featured on our website and awareness materials.
