Save Your Skin Foundation – blog
The Save Your Skin Foundation was created by North Vancouver, BC, Canada resident Kathy Barnard and her friends, family, and colleagues. Kathy was diagnosed with stage 4 malignant melanoma in 2003. Save Your Skin’s immediate goals are to raise awareness of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers, to provide melanoma patients with access to information about trial drugs, emotional and financial support, and to provide support to the new wave of melanoma survivors that is beginning to emerge due to the success of trial treatments.
