An Unusual Request: Help the Melanoma Research Foundation

The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) is working with a U.S. women's health magazine that’s writing an article highlighting that melanomas can appear in areas that don't get a lot of UV exposure. For this article they are looking looking for a young woman who has (or had) melanoma to profile in the story.

Specifically, the magazine is looking for a woman meeting the following caracteristics:
  • In her 20’s, 30’s or 40's
  • Lives in the United States
  • Recently diagnosis with stage III or IV melanoma (within the past few years)
  • The melanoma was found in an area that doesn’t get sun exposure or very surprising place such as the groin, fingers, toes, nail beds, palms, the soles of feet or eyes.
  • Did not tan
  • Did not have any other health issue when she was diagnosed (otherwise healthy and in shape)
  • Is available for a phone interview this week.

If this describes you or one of your patients or someone you know, please contact the Melanoma Research Foundation. The link takes give access to a form you or your patient should complete. The Melanoma Research Foundation will contact the you or your patient and the writer to schedule phone interview.
