A word from our Ambassador Adine Wilson

The Melanoma Foundation is dear to my heart, not only do they support those who have been diagnosed with Melanoma, with expert knowledge and medical science, they also ensure people are educated about the risks we Kiwi’s face from our unforgiving sun. There are no scare tactics, just good honest practical advice. We kiwi’s are an active lot and it is so important that we do not shy away from being outdoors. The Melanoma Foundation is a brilliant charity doing a ‘truck load” of fantastic work in the community, backed up with extremely passionate people driven to reduce the incidences of unfortunately a far too common cancer, Melanoma.
