Our Story

The David Cornfield Melanoma Fund was established in 2007 to take action on melanoma.

Melanoma is a common and serious skin cancer which, if not treated early, is usually fatal.  The good news is that the risk of melanoma can be significantly decreased by reducing exposure to UV radiation, and that the prognosis for melanoma patients can be improved by early detection.  The bad news is that despite increasing public awareness of the dangers of UV radiation, many people still do not understand the dangers of UV damage.  Further, not enough people are aware of the early signs of melanoma, or the importance of self detection.  As a result, melanoma is often ignored until it’s too late.  However, we believe that through David’s story, we can bring change.

Our Mission

The DCMF is devoted to saving lives from melanoma through prevention and research.

Our Objectives

  1. Promote awareness of melanoma and the importance of prevention and early self-detection
  2. Provide funding and support for education and research into the causes, controls, and cure of melanoma and melanoma related disease
