An enemy among us

Oregon consistently has one of the highest rates of melanoma incidence and death in the nation. In fact, women in Oregon who are diagnosed with melanoma have the second highest death rate compared to any other state, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Why is melanoma so common in a state that is known more for rain than sunshine?

A team of researchers at Oregon Health & Science University, in collaboration with patients, their family and friends, are determined to find answers and reduce deaths caused by melanoma.

Join the War on Melanoma; help us make melanoma the victim.
