We’re off to a strong start this May already and we’re planning on doing what we can to let our voice be heard when it comes to skin cancer. For those of you that might not be aware, May is skin cancer awareness month. I’ll be doing my best to share preventative tips that can help keep you skin cancer free for years to come. For those of you that may not think it’s as serious as it sounds, I’d like for you to respectfully think again.
It’s Officially Skin Cancer Awareness Month
For those of you that haven’t taken the time to really digest the information on our site, you’ll be surprised to find a significant amount of information on skin cancer. I’ve discussed how important it is to avoid tanning beds at all times. I’ve published information on celebrity Hugh Jackman and his battle against skin cancer.
We’ve also shared information on why sunburns can be extremely dangerous and have even educated our readers on the difference between UVA and UVB rays. The fact of the matter is that we do our best to continuously provide informative updates on skin related diseases and ailments. In addition to that, we’ve done our best to try and share every preventative measure as they are discovered.
Please do yourself a favor and take the time to educate yourself on this topic and try to share the knowledge with your friends, family and anyone else that you can. It may save someone else’s life in the long run.
For those of you that want to donate, the Skin Cancer Foundation is accepting donations. These donations will support the research and development in our fight against skin cancer.
Lastly, I’d like to challenge you and anyone that reads this article. I challenge you to wear sunscreen every single day this month. If you take the time to develop a habit of applying sunscreen daily, it will become less of a chore and more of a routine. Putting forth the effort to protect your skin from the sun can make a world of a difference. It may even prevent the worst from happening. Do it for yourself and for the rest of the individuals struggling with skin cancer who wish they had a second chance to protect their skin. Skin cancer awareness month is about helping others and raising awareness. Let’s all do our part to build a more widely educated environment.
