Help fight skin cancer
We are passionate about dermatology and we are hoping to inspire medical students to join us in the fight against skin cancer as well as other chronic skin conditions by supporting research! We created the Battle of the DermSocs as a designated medium for medical students to fundraise and promote skin health awareness!
We are hoping to raise money to support the amazing research funded by the British Skin Foundation, the results of which have a major impact on the lives of people across the country everyday.
We are a group of medical students interested in dermatology who want to raise money for the BSF by holding various events and encouraging individuals to take action and fundraise for the foundation.
The British Skin Foundation (BSF) are the only UK charity that raises money to fund research into all types of skin diseases, including skin cancer. As students who are interested in Dermatology as a career, the BSF are central for the funding of research. The BSF not only raises money for research, but also aim to raise awareness of skin diseases in the wider community. Educating people about the different skin conditions, helping to reduce stigma and promote understanding is just as essential.
BSF is the only charity in the UK funding cutting edge research into skin diseases.As a society we understand that when suffering from a skin disease, not only do you suffer from the disease itself but also from the psychological consequences of having visible disease. The skin is of course, the body's largest and most visible organ. It is for this reason that we will be fundraising as much as we can this year for BSF, to try find treatments and cures to these often common and debilita
The BSF is a great charity that raises money to support research which will hopefully lead to improvements being made to the lives of those who suffer with skin disease and skin cancer. From acne, to psoriasis and melanoma, to date, the BSF has awarded £16,000,000 in funding since 1996!
We are a passionate group of students from St.George's University obsessed with skin and everything around it! We are extremely exited about this initiative called battle of the DermSOCs and we hope it will motivate a lot of universities around the U.K. to fundraise for their amazing cause!

Skin problems are all too common. My Father had psoriasis, husband also. Husband had squamous cell carcinoma and now I have a basal cell carcinoma.
The British Skin Foundation is my charity of choice for the Ride Across Britain charity ride (7 - 15 September 2019). In 9 days I will ride my bicycle 900 miles from Lands End to John O'Groats in raising awareness for all types of skin diseases and conditions. In one way or another, we have all been affected personally or our loved ones have suffered from skin cancer, psoriasis, eczema, melanoma, lupus, dermatitis, vitiligo, and even acne.
