Your donation can help
save a life this year

Despite us having one of the most relaxed lifestyles in the world, exposure to the sun is affects thousands of us each year.

Australians have the highest incidence rate of melanomas in the world - you won’t have to look far to find someone you know that’s been touched by melanoma.

Unfortunately, despite people being more careful about sun protection and limiting their exposure, many won’t know they’re dangerously at risk of terminal cancer until it’s too late.

Melanomas are deadly because they quickly spread deadly cancer cells to other parts of the body that make treatment almost impossible. But your donation today can help fund vital research into a cure.

We’ve helped thousands of
people find hope

We've made significant progress over the last few years, but still one Australian dies from
melanoma every five hours. We need your help today to fund the next advances in life
saving research, trials, and treatment that we know will not only save lives but help families
of patients hold on to their loved ones.

David & Jenny's Story

Just like most of us, David and Jenny thought that their love story would last forever.

David was just 33 years old when he lost his fight with melanoma. He was a 'super progressor' and passed away only months after being diagnosed.

Here is their story.

A gift of $25 will fund an hour of pioneering research in where a researcher could make a major discovery or breakthrough

A donation of $50 will enable collection and processing of a blood or tissue sample to advance research and treatments for melanoma patients that are quickly running out of options

A  gift  of  $100  could  help  educate  schools,  companies  and  community  groups  about  sun-safety  to  prevent  melanoma

A gift of $250 will fund DNA gene sequencing of the Exome or RNA (“active genes”) from one patient helping us discover which genes are involved in ‘super progression’

Larger amounts will enable DNA sequencing of the whole genome or help top-up a PhD student Scholarship — enabling a future melanoma specialist to work on this vital project.

Here’s what your

Here’s just some of the people whose
lives have been changed by us

”I am so lucky to have a high level health service at MIA and the support of doctors and nurses who are giving me a good quality of life that keeps me smiling.”

Ruth Davies,
Melanoma Survivor

"My heroes don't wear capes, they're not out there on the pitch playing sport and often don't get the recognition they deserve. My heroes are MIA's doctors, nurses and researchers who are devoting their lives to treating and curing melanoma."

Grant Lawrence,
Melanoma Survivor

“I felt like I could never repay all that the Institute did for Nat. The effort that everyone put in to looking after her and the genuine care that they showed was critically important to us both.”

Paul Watts, MIA
