Educational Video

MD Anderson Children's Cancer Center created the Faces of Pediatric Melanoma video. If you know of other videos that you think would be helpful, please email education@melanoma.org

Support for Siblings

A melanoma diagnosis can be difficult for everyone, but siblings of patients are put in a very difficult situation. They can feel scared, overwhelmed, alone and unimportant. Here are some resources from SuperSibs!, now powered through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, for siblings who are 4-7 years, 8-12 years and teens, as well as a place for siblings to share their stories

Additional Support Organizations

Children’s Melanoma Prevention Foundation

National Children’s Cancer Society
