Being diagnosed with melanoma or having someone you love being diagnosed can feel overwhelming. It can be helpful to connect with others who are going through similar situations and share your experiences or find helpful advice.

Here are some ways to connect today.

Melanoma meetings

An opportunity to talk and share information about melanoma in a relaxed environment with others who have been affected by melanoma either personally or through family or friends. It’s a chance to meet others who are going through similar experiences and find support.

Our meetings are currently held in Auckland, for more information on upcoming meetings please contact our Melanoma Information Advisor on 09 449 2342 or email education@melanoma.org.nz for more information.

Events
