The Melanoma International Foundation (MIF) creates and supports melanoma programs for the prevention, early detection, and treatment of melanoma. Educating patients about clinical trials as well as providing funds for patient travel and lodging for clinical trials and second opinions are included in MIF’s patient services. MIF provides a hotline to help melanoma patients and their families understand their pathology, what clinical trials are available, and how to get the best palliative care. MIF also provides early detection education and teaches skin self-examination and sun safety. An online forum is available to provide community support for people with melanoma and their caregivers. MIF’s educational programs range from educating new parents through high school students. MIF also offers webinars and workplace education programs to bring melanoma awareness and education to corporations across the country.
