March is Melanoma Awareness month and the Melanoma Foundation of New Zealand would like to invite you to participate in our second national ‘Go Spotty’ Mufti Day on Friday 28th March to raise awareness of this terrible disease that is affecting over 4000 kiwis every year.
The idea is to get everyone wearing something spotty or dotty to get people thinking about melanoma and checking their skin for ‘spots’ or signs that could lead to melanoma later on in life.
Find out more on our 'Go Spotty Day' page.
