Our Mission

Melanoma is the second most common cancer in adolescents and the most common cancer in young adults under 30. We created the Claire Marie Foundation because young people shouldn’t be fighting melanoma. They should be jumping over waves, dancing at concerts, playing with their team, studying, launching careers and seeing the world. That’s why we’re doing everything we can to stop this disease in young people. Our mission is to raise clarity and hope in the fight against adolescent and young adult melanoma through awareness, education and prevention which includes our Free Skin Screening Program. We are already making big waves — together, we can create a tidal wave.
