Who We Are

United by a shared purpose to prevent melanoma, two Canadian charities, the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund and the Douglas Wright Foundation joined forces to create #newfamilyrule.

David Cornfield Melanoma Fund’s mission is to save lives from melanoma skin cancer through prevention and research. Formed in 2007 in memory of David Cornfield, a much loved father, family member and friend who died of melanoma at 32 years of age, David’s family, friends and colleagues continue to honour his wish to educate people that melanoma can be preventable. The David Cornfield Melanoma Fund is the proud creator of the award-winning viral video ‘Dear 16 Year Old Me’ which has touched millions and saved lives. www.dcmf.ca

The Douglas Wright Foundation is devoted to fighting melanoma in Canada by increasing awareness, educating the public about early detection and preventative measures, and fostering partnerships between like-minded organizations. The Douglas Wright Foundation was formed in memory of Douglas Wright who tragically passed away from melanoma in 2011 at the age of 29. Doug was an energetic and positive person who invigorated the lives of his friends, family, and his community. The Douglas Wright Foundation aims to embody Doug’s best qualities in the fight against melanoma. www.douglaswrightfoundation.ca
