In the course of a lifetime, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer, and despite the belief that skin cancer is a relatively "safe" cancer, and is much easier to cure, approximately 1 person every hour, on average, dies from Melanoma. However, the good news is that with early detection, often made possible by education, 99% of those diagnosed with skin cancer survive.
So how can you help? This is a pretty simple one! For every person that Joins the Cause against skin cancer, a donation is made to organizations like The Skin Cancer Foundation that works to educate the public on how to detect and prevent skin cancer.
