Prevention. Detection. Treatment.
Know Melanoma, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization
Our mission is to abate the global skin cancer epidemic by addressing the unmet need for international skin cancer literacy. We provide individuals an understanding of their risk of skin cancer, and equip them with the knowledge of how they can protect themselves. Skin cancer is the most prevalent, yet most preventable, form of cancer worldwide. Through education, we can correct the harmful behavioral patterns of certain populations.
Never stop educating ourselves and the public on the deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma.
Constantly strive to improve and evolve our methods for conveying the dangers of skin cancer and how to properly prevent it.
Share the stories of melanoma survivors to inspire hope and build an international community.
Work with industry leaders to make our tools and resources available to as many people as possible.
In the summer of 2017, Scott Shrager established Know Melanoma, Inc., inspired by a passion for dermatology/oncology, his mother's two melanoma diagnoses, and a frightening revelation that free, accurate, and creative melanoma education/prevention centers simply do not exist. What distinguishes Know Melanoma from other skin cancer awareness foundations is that we produce our own proprietary tools, and intensely focus on the quality of our content and how it is delivered.
