Skin Cancer Tasmania is now part of Melanoma Institute Australia, providing strengthened local services in Tasmania for melanoma patients and their families.

Skin Cancer Tasmania now part of MIA

Founded by Dianne Mason in 2014, Skin Cancer Tasmania started off its journey as Melanoma Tasmania, as a way of honouring Dianne’s mum, Judy Shelton, who passed away from the disease in 2004 after only an eight-week battle.

Dianne is now the State Manager – Tasmania for Melanoma Institute Australia.

Being part of Melanoma Institute Australia will help to bolster access to melanoma support services for melanoma patients in Tasmania as well as increase melanoma awareness and prevention, and expand opportunities for local clinicians to access leading melanoma education and research.

We offer support and a link to others impacted by melanoma, to all Tasmanians, through:

  • One on one sessions, either by telephone, email or in person
