How We Help

How we help

This is your chance to help end melanoma.

In recent years, research breakthroughs have tripled the life expectancy for patients with advanced melanoma. We are making progress, but we need your support to continue with our research so we can find a cure and end melanoma.

Melanoma is the most common cancer in young Australians (15-39 years). Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world with some 40 Australians diagnosed every day. One Australian dies from melanoma every five hours.

Research is critical in developing effective treatments for melanoma, and in helping to find a cure. Melanoma Institute Australia relies on donations from the community to continue its ground-breaking research.

By supporting Leave Your Hat On, you are helping Melanoma Institute Australia raise much needed funds that will go toward this life-saving research.

We are grateful for every donation we receive. Your support is helping us end melanoma and will change the lives of thousands of Australians affected by melanoma.
