The group was set up in memory of Jon Herron, a young man from Larne in Northern Ireland who sadly passed away in May 2008. Initially the aim was to fund raise and raise awareness of melanoma and started off as Factor 50, becoming Melanoma UK in 2013.
We were founder members of the parliamentary task force which was brought together by Sian James MP in 2010. We work with NICE and are called upon to give evidence during appraisals of melanoma treatments. Our aim is to provide support to as many melanoma patients and families as we possibly can.
