Melanoma Network of Canada

The network was founded to respond to the need for patients in Canada to have a nationally-based organization to coordinate educational and prevention efforts, provide a strong voice for advocacy, and assist in efforts to target funding for melanoma research. Support groups are available for individuals with melanoma to share experiences and resource with each other. A telephone peer-to-peer program is also available that connects melanoma patients to a trained and certified peer who has also faced the disease. Peers will share their stories, act as a supportive mentor and provide support. This service will be offered by telephone and can connect patients anywhere in the country.  Peer mentors will be assigned (based on availability) by similar geographic location, diagnosis, life situation, etc.
