Protect your skin all year round.
I’d had this particular mole for about 5 years, but because it was on the back of my leg it was hard to see, and I didn’t realise that it had changed. Gill probably saved my life that day; as Ryman’s charity of the year, the Melanoma New Zealand Spot Check Van had been visiting the retirement village where David and I live, however, neither of us had planned to go and have a free spot check that day.

We champion melanoma prevention, detection and patient care for all New Zealanders.
If melanoma is caught and treated early enough, it is almost always curable.
There are more than 6,000 diagnoses of melanoma in New Zealand every year. More people die from skin cancer than on our roads. It doesn’t have to be this way.
We also provide valuable education empowering people to look after the skin they are in.
