Save Your Skin Foundation

The Save Your Skin Foundation is a community of volunteers determined to eliminate melanoma through research and education, and dedicated to those touched by it.  It’s a local foundation right here on the North Shore that is committed to providing patients with melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer information and treatment options.  Their hope is that other families don’t have to go through what the founder of their organization, Kathy Barnard, and her family did.  See Kathy’s story by clicking here.


The Foundation started with the dream of Kathy’s sister Rose.  The family had been through a stressful few years trying to find information on melanoma treatments and research and discovered that there was not much current information available.

They are an amazing organization that is determined to raise awareness of this disease and to raise funds to support on-going research and treatment initiatives.

These are their objectives:

  • To provide financial assistance for education, awareness, and treatment
  • To promote education and awareness of skin cancer
  • To raise funds to further research treatment options

This summer Zazou has partnered with them to help raise awareness about keeping your skin safe this season and what you can do to protect it.  Please click here to see more about the Save Your Skin Foundation.
