Melanoma month: A call to check your skin

It’s melanoma March this month and the Melanoma March National Appeal is kicking off with 'A call to check your skin'. Melanoma New Zealand’s goal is to get Kiwis, who have the highest melanoma rates in the world, to be proactive in looking out for the early signs of this deadly skin cancer. Over 4000 New Zealanders are diagnosed each year with melanoma. Around 300 New Zealanders die of melanoma every year.
