Skin Cancer in Colorado

An Increased Risk

The Colorado Melanoma Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to promote melanoma awareness in Colorado by educating residents about melanoma skin cancer & sun-safe behavior, delivering preventative skin screening services, and providing support for current patients.  

​The Sun's harmful Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation damages skin cells, causing cancer. Coloradans are exposed to an excessive amount of UV due to our elevation, +300 days of sunshine, and love for the outdoors. As a result, we rank among the highest in the nation for skin cancer incidence and mortality rates
