Summer 2019

Having five or more blistering sunburns before the age of 20 increases one’s chance for developing skin cancer by roughly 80%. For this reason, Know Melanoma is focusing on youth outreach this summer. We have already partnered with eight local camps and school to deliver fun and engaging presentations on skin cancer. The picture below is from our first presentation this summer, which took place at Johnson Park Elementary School on June 9! If you’re interested in having Know Melanoma present to your campers or students, please email scottshrager@knowmelanoma.org.

Mission

Skin cancer is the most prevalent, yet most preventable, form of cancer worldwide. Our mission is to abate the global skin cancer epidemic by addressing the unmet need for skin cancer literacy, and by empowering individuals to prevent skin cancer through novel technologies and community engagement.

 

Goals

EDUCATE

Provide accessible education on the most prevalent form of cancer in the world, skin cancer.

EVOLVE

Improve and evolve our methods for conveying the dangers of skin cancer and how to properly prevent it.

SHARE

Share the stories of melanoma survivors to inspire hope and build an international community.

COLLABORATE

Work with industry leaders to make our tools and resources available to as many people as possible.

 

History

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.
