Assistance Program

The World Skin Cancer Foundation has been raising money for skin cancer awareness since 2005.  The WSCF conducts skin cancer screenings and educates the population on the importance of skin self-examinations, as well as the significance of early detection and treatment. 

Skin cancer can easily be treated in the early stages, but if left untreated it can not only be deadly, but also disfiguring.  Unfortunately, when early skin cancers such as malignant melanoma are detected in the indigent and uninsured population there is a tendency to ignore such a seemingly insignificant "mole" on the skin, especially since the treatment is usually unaffordable.  Treatment options can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. 

The WSCF would now like to expand its focus on skin cancer awareness and education to the treatment of skin cancer and melanoma in particular.  The WSCF would like to give back to the community by providing the uninsured population an opportunity for appropriate treatment of skin cancer. 

This program is based on trust between the patient, physician and WSCF with a general will to improve health care delivery to the uninsured through honesty, standard of care and integrity.
