Melanoma March’ 2015 is set to arrive in Wollongong for the second time on Sunday, 22 February from 7:30am at Stuart Park. The month long fundraising and melanoma awareness campaign is an initiative of Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) and now in its fourth year.

The annual ‘Melanoma March’ event is the principal fundraiser for MIA and the monies raised from the 2014 campaign have gone towards launching the Brain Mets Trial – a world‐first clinical trial that aims to benefit patients with advanced melanoma tumors that have spread to the brain (metastases).

Touted as ‘Australia’s cancer’, Australia has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world with over 12,500 new cases diagnosed each year. In 20–34 year-olds, melanoma kills more young Australians than any other single cancer.

Jay Allen, a community coordinator at Melanoma Institute Australia, whose passion for the campaign stems from his personal battle overcoming melanoma.
