Amie St Clair Melanoma
Amie St Clair Melanoma, based in Wagga Wagga, has been part of Melanoma Institute Australia since 2020.
About Amie St Clair Melanoma
Amie St Clair Melanoma Trust was formed by Annette and Peter St Clair in 2010, in honour of their daughter Amie, who passed away from melanoma when she was just 23 years old.
Annette and Peter wanted to make a difference by raising awareness of melanoma, providing better access to specialised care for patients in the Wagga Wagga region, and supporting cancer research.
In Febuary 2020, Amie St Clair Melanoma celebrated its 10th Anniversary, and the merger with Melanoma Institute Australia was announced.
Melanoma patients in the Riverina region will benefit from strengthened and sustained melanoma services, including:
- Increased capacity of the free melanoma nursing services;
- The establishment of clinical trials in Wagga Wagga;
- Opportunities for melanoma patients within the region to contribute to MIA research;
- Melanoma Education opportunities – both professional (GPs/Clinics) and community, including the SunSafe Student Ambassador program.

Melanoma Clinical Trial opens in Wagga
Melanoma patients throughout the Riverina now have access to a potentially life-saving immunotherapy clinical trial in Wagga, saving them a monthly 10 hour round-trip to Sydney. The MIA clinical trial is running out of the Riverina Cancer Care Centre and is the first clinical trial to open in Wagga following last year’s merger of MIA and the Amie St Clair Melanoma Trust.

Upcoming Amie St Clair Events
Amie St Clair 10th Annual Ball - Postponed until Saturday 25 June 2022
Join us to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Enjoy dinner, entertainment, raffles and auctions.
Please note due to COVID our Ball has been postponed until Saturday 24 June 2022.
‘To have to cancel our Ball three times now has left us with a shortfall of funding, and sadly the ones who stand to be impacted most are local melanoma patients and their families,’ - Annette St Clair
