    General’s Message: Have you been encouraging your community to Start Seeing Melanoma™?

    Our early detection campaign has been going strong for several months now — summer has been flying by! I hope you have seen some of these messages ‘in the wild’. These are great for awareness, but the true power of these messages comes in personal connection and delivery, which is where YOU can make all the difference!

    I’d like to give a shout-out to those who attended our first wave of Hometown Hero volunteer training! We are building strong boots on the ground presence and are hoping many others will follow the lead and ultimately become melanoma Hometown Heroes. More on this below!
