Melanoma Network of Canada

Melanoma Network of Canada Raising awareness and prevention through Education, Advocacy and Research. Check your skin monthly. https://linktr.ee/MNC20 History of the MNC

The Melanoma Network of Canada (MNC) was founded in 2009 by Annette Cyr, a patient and two-time survivor of melanoma, in conjunction with support and assistance from Jo Anne Adams, a patient survivor, and Terra Deeth, caregiver to a husband with melanoma.

The organization was founded to respond to the need for patients in Canada to have a nationally-based organization to coordinate educational and prevention efforts, provide a strong voice for advocacy, and assist in efforts to target funding for melanoma research.

Melanoma, My Invisible Enemy for 11 years – Melanoma Network of Canada

“The enemy is never more unnerving than when he’s invisible.” – K.J Parker.
No words could be more true! Cancer has been my invisible enemy for 11 years. My name is Brandon Smith and I have Stage 4 metastatic melanoma.

What’s worse than being told you have cancer? Being told you have cancer for a second time, and now it has spread throughout your body. Brandon shares his Stage 4 melanoma journey from diagnosis to treatment and now his children helped him through his biggest fight yet.

Compassion fatigue or ‘burnout” is a state that can occur from long-term exposure to difficult or emotionally draining circumstances, such as caring for a loved one with cancer.

Experiencing burnout is a common consequence of caregiving, meaning that caregivers need to take care of themselves as well.

At MNC we offer several caregiver support resources including our caregiver forum and caregiver support group. If you think you may be experiencing burnout, please contact us for support https://bit.ly/37n4hqi

I'm currently researching different precautions that individuals take to protect themselves from the sun and potential skin damage. I want to know the types of things that sun conscious people do, and why these precautions either work or don't work so well. If you are a sun conscious individual who takes precautions to protect yourself, I want to hear from you! If you have five minutes checkout the questionnaire below! Any insight is beneficial and very much appreciated! -- Regan

Studies have shown that both honeybee venom and melittin exhibited antitumoral effects, including melanoma and other types of cancers. Moreover, melittin nanoparticles have been used to suppress liver metastasis.
