DONATE NOW: Double Your Impact

After being treated for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, Cindi Eggemeyer was determined to educate her students and spare them from the same pain that she experienced. Cindi chose The Skin Cancer Foundation youth education program, Sun Smart U, to encourage life-long sun safety habits in her students.

Without the generous support of donors like you, The Skin Cancer Foundation could not provide life-saving programs like Sun Smart U. From free skin cancer screening events across the country to medical research grants, the Foundation is leading the fight against skin cancer.

This is your chance to support our vital mission and have your impact doubled. A long time supporter, Dr. Marcia Robbins-Wilf, has pledged to match up to $25,000 of individual donations to support The Skin Cancer Foundation. Donate by August 25 to have your gift matched
