Monday marks Melanoma Monday, did you know… the sun is actually brighter now than it was four centuries ago?
The sun is getting brighter, there is less protective ozone and people are spending more time outdoors. And, due to global climate changes, the spring season starts earlier and fall arrives later. This means we are exposed to more dangerous UV rays now than in earlier decades.
Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, is the most preventable type of cancer but is still on the rise. Help raise awareness by wearing ORANGE on “Melanoma Monday,” Monday, May 6.
