Charity of the week: Melanoma Research Foundation

The Melanoma Research Foundation is the world’s largest independent organization devoted to addressing melanoma.

The Melanoma Research Foundation (melanoma.org) is the world’s largest independent organization devoted to addressing melanoma, the fastest-growing form of skin cancer. The MRF supports medical research to find effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma, which can also occur in the eyes, in mucous membranes, and beneath fingernails and toenails. As well as educating patients and physicians about the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of melanoma, the MRF advocates for the melanoma community and raises awareness of the disease. It urges everyone to check their skin regularly for suspicious moles or lesions and to apply sunscreen, since most melanomas are attributed to exposure to ultraviolet light. The MRF’s website is the premier source for those seeking information about melanoma.

Each charity we feature has earned a four-star overall rating from Charity Navigator, which rates not-for-profit organizations on the strength of their finances, their control of administrative and fundraising expenses, and the transparency of their operations. Four stars is the group’s highest rating.
