As May, Skin Cancer Awareness Month, comes to an end I wanted to highlight a few ways all of us can help support skin cancer research.
Or if you prefer to donate in a more roundabout way – consider buying from one of these companies. When you do a donation will be made to The Skin Cancer Foundation.
And remember to always set a good example when it comes to sun protection. Never use a tanning bed and educate others on the risks of tanning beds (see my post Teens and Tanning Beds for more information). Always apply sunscreen daily. Wear a hat and sunglasses when you are outdoors. Get a skin cancer screening.
Also help out by signing a “ letter to the Surgeon General asking her to urge the FDA to enact stricter regulations and more oversight of tanning beds”. The letter is sponsored by The Skin Cancer Foundation.
The Skin Cancer Foundation offers even more sun safe tips.
Have a great and sun safe Memorial Day Weekend!
