Arbella & The Melanoma Foundation of New England
Founded in 1999, the Melanoma Foundation of New England (MFNE) has made it their mission to reducing occurrences of melanoma throughout the New England region. Arbella is a proud to be the Official Auto Insurance Partner of the Melanoma Foundation of New England of the MFNE and Arbella are committed to helping raise awareness of this type of cancer.
Melanoma is one of the most preventable types of cancer, yet it is increasing at a faster rate than most. With simple things like wearing sunblock and scheduling a yearly check-up with a dermatologist, you can drastically reduce your chances of getting melanoma.
This summer, The Arbella Insurance Foundation is partnering with the MFNE on the skin cancer awareness initiative, “Practice Safe Sun.” In this program, The Arbella Foundation and the MFNE will be placing free sunscreen dispensers in in parks, playgrounds, and beaches all across Massachusetts. Proper sunscreen use can help reduce the risk of melanoma and other types of skin cancer.
The MFNE offers free support groups, educational programs, professional care, and lots of other services. They truly care about improving the lives of people in our communities and Arbella is proud to partner with this wonderful organization.
