The Melanoma Action Coalition (MAC) was established in 2014 by leaders of seven community-based foundations focused on increasing awareness about melanoma, providing education about sun safety, and raising money for melanoma research. Originally based in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, MAC has since grown to include organizations and individuals nationwide. MAC’s mission is to welcome similar non-profit organizations to work together in a national network to raise funds for education, awareness, prevention and research.
