Melanoma Patients Australia (MPA) is the peak national patient organisation for Australians affected by melanoma.

We represent the voice of melanoma patients with the government, the medical profession, cancer and research organisations.

Our vision is that all Australians affected by melanoma receive the best support, information, treatment and care. We want to ensure that no one affected by melanoma walks alone.

Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer. While it accounts for just 2% of skin cancers, it causes 75% of skin cancer deaths. In recent years there have many improvements in the treatments available to those diagnosed with melanoma, especially if detected early, but unfortunately, if left undetected melanoma spreads easily and can quickly become life threatening.

What Your Support Means To Us

Whether you raise a little or a lot for us we appreciate every effort, and we will put your fund towards our vital support services.

Today we provide support services across Australia in the form of face to face, online and telephone support groups, as well as holding annual information forums and publishing a range of evidence-based brochures, resources and videos.
