Apex Foundation has been funding melanoma research since 1989 and continues to do so through its Charitable Trust. In this time there has been enormous improvements to detection and cure and recent breakthroughs are both significant and exciting. Our aim is to assist in the research, treatment and funding of this deadly skin cancer which is so prevalent in Australia. Apex’s involvement in the melanoma cause began when over $ 600,000 was raised in the 1988/1989 under National Apex Service Scheme promoted by Moree Apex Club in Moree, New South Wales. Over the years it has been a major benefactor to the Sydney based Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA).

Melanoma is the third most common form of cancer in both men and women and with the highest incidence in the world, melanoma is known as Australia’s national cancer. Melanoma is also the most common cancer in young Australians aged 15-29 years and kills more young Australians than any other cancer.

Apex supports the Melanoma Institute of Australia (MIA) and since inception over $1M  has been granted for this cause.
