New website provides support for melanoma sufferers

A new website launched by Melanoma Patients Australia offers support and resources for people with the melanoma and their relatives, carers, and friends. Melanoma - sometimes known as the "invisible cancer" because patients often look healthy and well - can be successfully treated if detected early but kills about 10% of patients, often young people.

Melanoma Patients Australia (MPA) CEO Lisa MacFadyen said Brisbane held the dubious honour of being the Melanoma capital of the world. Developed in partnership with Brisbane agency SIMJEN, the new website delivers a fully interactive online experience for members where they can share personal survivor stories, donate to MPA projects, access educational materials, participate in forums, and hear about upcoming events. To find out more visit www.melanomapatients.org.au or phone 1300 88 44 50.
