The Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund

Tackling Rising Rates of Melanoma

Adventure for Melanoma

Why plan an adventure? Because who knows where it might lead.

“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.” Rabindranath Tagore

If there’s an adventure bubbling away inside of you, why not enrich the experience and turn it into a fundraising challenge?  If you think that may be too complicated or time consuming think again. If you plan on supporting the Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund, we can in turn, support you, ensuring that your efforts are optimised and your goals are achieved.

Why Support Us?

We are a small but passionate melanoma dedicated charity that has raised over £400,000 over the last 14 year to help raise awareness and fund research to find a cure. Over the last 30 years, rates of melanoma in the UK have risen faster than any of the current top ten cancers. Around 12,800 cases were diagnosed in 2010 in the UK; that’s around 35 people every day.  By supporting us you will be helping us make a difference and every single penny helps.
