The I’m Living Proof initiative is a program intended to provide a wealth of information, resources, and support to those touched by the disease, while also connecting you to a community of survivors who have shared their stories. This initiative is borne from Save Your Skin Founder Kathy’s desire to ensure that those diagnosed with melanoma know that surviving melanoma is possible –“I’m Living Proof.”

Together, we can make a difference. 

Since 2006, Save Your Skin Foundation has worked to raise awareness of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers focusing on education, support, and improved patient care.
