Story

Hi there,
  
Melanoma Facts (Melanoma Institute Australia)

Australia has the highest melanoma rates in the world. Melanoma is often referred to as ‘Australia’s national cancer’.

It is expected that 16,800 Australians will be diagnosed with melanoma this year

1 Australian is diagnosed with melanoma every 30 minutes

It is estimated 1300 Australians will die from melanoma this year

One Australian dies from melanoma every 6 hours

Melanoma is the third most common cancer in Australia

Melanoma is the most common cancer for Australians aged 20 to 39

Melanoma is the second most common cancer in Australian men, after prostate cancer

Melanoma is the third most common cancer in Australian women, after breast and colorectal cancer

95% of melanomas are caused by overexposure to UV radiation from the sun

If caught early, 90% of melanomas can be cured by surgery

Research is making a difference

In the last decade, the 5-year overall survival rate for advanced melanoma has increased from <10% to >50%.
Australia has the highest melanoma rates in the world. 
 
I have decided to make a difference by creating my very own fundraising page for Melanoma March, participating in the Coolangatta March 29/5/22. Through here you can easily support my efforts by making a secure donation. All funds raised will go towards a national melanoma research project to save lives. I would also really appreciate it if you could share my page or comment so more people know about it.
