May 6 Is Melanoma Monday!May 6th, 2013 at 2:47 pm by Brian Lapis under News, Weather
It’s Melanoma Monday! A day set aside by the American Academy of Dermatology, to raise awareness of Melanoma, and how to prevent it. The most important thing to keep in mind s that there is no such thing as a “healthy” tan. Sunscreen & sunblock are essential to skin health. The American Academy of Dermatoligists has a great Melonoma awareness page. The Melanoma Foundation of New England is also a great resource. Melanoma survivor Meghan Rothschild (a Pioneer Valley local!) has a great web site, www.survingskin.org. Protect your skin this summer, and all year long!
