Welcome to MelaNoMore

As patients living with melanoma, we understand that receiving the diagnosis can be a frightening, confusing and isolating experience. That’s why, with assistance of St Luke’s Skin Cancer Team and Macmillan Cancer Support, we’ve joined forces to create our local support group MelaNoMore.

MelaNoMore and this website has been created to help anyone affected by Melanoma who is or have been treated at the following NHS Trusts: Royal Surrey County Hospital, Ashford & St Peters, East Surrey Hospital, and Frimley Park Hospital.  This includes patients, their family members/friends or carers.

Our Aims are Simple:

We provide a safe place for people to help each other, when they have been affected by Melanoma, both people who have first-hand experience of the disease as well as family members and friends who have also been affected along with their loved ones.

  • We hold social events of various types on a regular basis to provide peer support in the local community.
  • We also invite group members to Wellbeing Webinars throughout the year, on topics relevant to the Group members. Cancer affects all sorts of areas of our life, not just the physical but mental, spiritual, financial and social, to name but a few. We are here to help support each other to learn how to thrive and live well beyond cancer.
  • We provide lots of information through this website and our facebook page to help link you up with other organisations that can provide help.
  • We provide information through our monthly Newsletter.
  • Our Buddy System has been running since Oct20 (see Buddies Page) so that if you’d like, you will have one to one peer support to help you through challenging times together and to celebrate every step you take forwards.
