We've partnered with the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) to provide reliable information, emotional support and helpful resources through a helpline. To speak with a professional oncology social worker, call 877‑MRF‑6460 (877‑673‑6460). Learn more about counseling.
Find resources and support to manage your financial concerns. Limited assistance from CancerCare® is available to eligible families for cancer-related costs.
Connect with others in our free support groups led by oncology social workers.
We currently do not offer a melanoma specific group. You may consider joining our general online support groups for people with cancer. Register now.
If you live in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut, learn about and view the full calendar of our free community programs.
