About Us

We’re on a Mission to Save Lives

The Skin Cancer Foundation saves and improves lives.
We empower people to take a proactive approach to
daily sun protection and the early detection and treatment
of skin cancer.

Established in 1979, the Foundation is the only global organization solely devoted to the preventionearly detection and treatment of skin cancer. Our goal is to decrease the incidence of skin cancer through public and professional education and research.

What We Do

We provide you with the tools you need to prevent, detect and treat skin cancer. Our most crucial role is to help you understand the risks of skin cancer, show you what you can do to avoid the disease and teach you how to spot potential skin cancers at an early stage, when they are usually curable.


Who We Are

Our physicians, donors and corporate partners, along with members of the media, help us develop and distribute our programs to those who need them most.
