About Jack’s Fund

Our vision statement guides, influences and frames all that we do.

Our Vision

We envision a world where every adult and child is aware of the risks of melanoma and takes preventative measures; where those who suffer from melanoma receive comfort and healing; and ultimately, where every case of melanoma will be completely curable.

Why Jack's Fund?

The Jack H. Marston II Melanoma Fund was established in July, 2004 when melanoma took the life of Jack H. Marston II at the age of 47. Although Jack’s battle was a private one and his intention was to quietly beat the disease, his valor in the fight taught us much.
