Frequently asked questions

Melanoma is the only cancer you can stop with your eyes. Yet, melanoma rates continue to rise nationwide. Oregonians, in particular, at a high-risk for this sinister disease, ranking in the top 10 in melanoma rates for both men and women. We will not stand back while this disease continues to take the lives of mothers, fathers, friends, and otherwise healthy individuals. We need to take decisive and collaborative action to fight back. Together we can end melanoma. Join us.

You are not committing to anything in particular by signing up. You have full control of how, when and where you'd like to participate! 

When you register you gain ease of use to find activities and log your outreach when you are ready to volunteer.

Opportunities to volunteer will change over time, but they include anything from as little as pressing a one-button share on social media, to staffing a booth or event, to anything as large as hosting your own event. Truly the sky is the limit.
