The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) is the largest independent organization devoted to melanoma. The MRF is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.
Committed to the support of medical research in finding effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma, the MRF also educates patients, caregivers and physicians about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma.
The MRF's website is the premier source for melanoma information seekers.
The MRF is also an active advocate for the melanoma community, helping to raise awareness of this disease and the need for a cure. Its online forum - the Melanoma Patients Information Page (MPIP) - is the oldest and largest community of people affected by melanoma and is hosted through the MRF. It is designed to provide support and information to caregivers, patients, family and friends.
