Just a quick blog for my melanoma friends near and far... In preparation for World Mental Health Day on October 10, 2017, Save Your Skin Foundation is researching the topic of mental health associated with a skin cancer diagnosis. With this research we are going to put together a report to help us help patients as they cope with their disease. We are also looking to create an informative data poster for use at oncology conferences and events.
Melanoma is commonly associated with strong feelings of grief, fear, and an overall mental and emotional roller coaster ride. Melanoma patients and survivors are invited to complete this short and anonymous survey created by patients and staff at Save Your Skin Foundation.
Thank you for your help! ...and I will keep you posted as to the resulting report and action we take with the information.
Survey closes September 25, 2017
