Get Involved

We welcome you to join a network of passionate community members, survivors and professionals throughout Oregon that are ready to spread the word, make a difference and save some lives.

If you are interested in fighting against melanoma, in any way, please consider registering for our volunteer program. Registering does not commit you to anything, but offers the best way to view, sign up, and track opportunities.

To view instructions on how to register, you can view our Volunteer page. Examples of volunteer opportunities include:

Share social media

For more up to date posts to share, follow our social media channels!

Without contributions from generous donors, we are unable to do much of the critical work to reduce melanoma deaths in Oregon and beyond.

If you, a family member, or a loved one has been personally affected by melanoma, and you would like to fight back, please consider a contribution to the War on Melanoma™. Your gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the law.
