Join our ranks and help spread the awareness message that melanoma is not just skin cancer…ONE person DIES every hour from Melanoma!
Addison’s Army Against Melanoma is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to the fight against melanoma skin cancer through education, advocacy and prevention.
Our story began when both mother and daughter, Briana and Addison Cox, were diagnosed with metastasized malignant melanoma. In a rare occurrence the cancer was passed from mother to daughter during pregnancy. Briana 34 years old, and Addison 2 years old, both lost their lives to melanoma.
WHAT IS MELANOMA
Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer and the leading cause of death from skin disease. In addition to the surface of the skin, melanoma can also metastasize to internal organs and structures within the body.
