MelaNoMore is a safe place where those affected by melanoma, including family members, can:
Through social & virtual social events, such as our Virtual Cafe, where everyone can meet in person, chat and seek advice. We will return to “real” meetings when Covid-19 restrictions permit.

We have set up the MelaNoMore Buddies, who team up on a one-to-one basis with Friends going through similar experiences, providing friendship and a listening ear.

This website has been created to help anyone affected by Melanoma who is or has been treated at the following NHS Trusts: Royal Surrey County Hospital, Ashford & St Peters, East Surrey Hospital, and Frimley Park Hospital.
We are a Social and Support Group who can help put you in touch with other people who have been through or are going through what you are facing now. We can also point you in the direction of help or advice. We have all been there in different ways and talking often helps. You are not alone!
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 group meeting of various types on a regular basis to provide peer support in the local community
- We hold education days twice a year with a number of speakers on topics relevant to the Group members, chosen by 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 link you up with other organisations that can provide help.
- We set up a Buddy System in 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.
MelaNoMore is your local support group, so if you have ideas or think there is something you need, please let us know and we will work with you to develop the group in that direction.
To join the Group all you have to do is make contact via the contact routes in the website or come to a meeting or event, details of which are set out in the events section of this website. We look forward to seeing you.
