Our Mission

The Claire Marie Foundation provides clarity and hope in the fight against adolescent and young adult melanoma through awareness, education and prevention.

Our Vision

“Breathe deeply. Keep moving forward. You will feel the sunshine again.” Claire shared her vision with all of us as she battled adolescent melanoma. We believe that the Claire Marie Foundation will be the leading voice for awareness of all causes of melanoma in young people. We will strive for prevention by connecting adolescents, young adults, parents and the general public with those in the medical community by creating a new narrative that will lead to solid action to reduce the number of adolescents and young adults diagnosed with melanoma.

Our Values

The Claire Marie Foundation strives to raise awareness, clarity and hope in the fight against adolescent melanoma while celebrating the joy, color and beauty of the world as Claire did every day.

Melanoma is at epic proportions – increasing 250% in the last 40 years.
