Honoring

Share Your Story

Do you have blog entries, photos, webpages, etc. that you would like to share to honor yourself or your loved one? We have learned that melanoma patients and their friends/families feel alone when they receive their diagnoses. 

Our goal is to share as many stories as we can to create a destination where anyone can find reassurance that they are not alone and find comfort in that knowledge. Thank you for helping to raise awareness and to promote healing by sharing your experience.

Please feel free to send us your story. This is a very powerful way to make a difference in the fight against melanoma.
