Skin Cancer Awareness Month

The Friday before Memorial Day is Don’t Fry Day: Protect your skin today and every day.

Millions of Americans will enjoy the great outdoors Memorial Day weekend. Skin cancer, caused by too much sun, is the most common of all cancers in the United States. More people will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year than breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancer combined.

The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention reminds you to enjoy the outdoors safely. We have named the Friday before Memorial Day Don’t Fry Day. In the same way we teach kids to wear bike helmets, we can also teach them to wear wide-brimmed hats.
