Caring Matters Now Ireland supports children and adults affected by Congenital Melanocytic Naevi (CMN) Congenital Melanocytic Naevus is a brown or black mole present at birth. They can be very large, covering up to 80% of the body, and very numerous. Those with large or multiple CMN have an increased risk of melanoma). At the moment, large or multiple CMN are mostly untreatable. CMN syndrome is the association of these birthmarks with brain problems including tumours, and/or characteristic facial features, or subtle problems with hormones.
Caring Matters Now Ireland was founded in 2020, partnering with Caring Matters Now to fulfil our shared aims.
We have a vision of a world where no one suffers from CMN.
Caring Matters Now focuses its work in three areas:
- Supporting those affected by CMN
- Funding pioneering research to find a cure for CMN
- Raising national and international awareness of CMN
