Marty Tenenbaum, a skin cancer survivor, has created a free online app along with Cancer Commons that is revolutionary in its ability to connect people across all borders and give them a chance to make large-scale connections in the battle against skin cancer.

He launched his web application to bring together patients, physicians, and scientists regardless of separation class, education or gender lines.
