Melanoma can be a traumatic experience for many patients and their families. The MMP Consumer Reference Group would like you to know that Melbourne now has its own Melanoma Support Group run by fellow melanoma patients. Mr Nathan Jones is a stage 4 melanoma survivor and Mr Jay Allen is a stage 3 melanoma survivor. Both have interesting stories to tell but more importantly they want to hear your story and help make your melanoma journey less onerous.
The Melanoma Support Group meetings are held every month. The next meeting is scheduled for the 11th of December at the Carey Baptist grammar School – Junior Campus, 9 Era Court, Donvale (off Springvale Road). Details are advertised each month on the MMP website or Facebook page. Alternatively you can contact the facilitators:
