No Tanning Promise

Make the Promise Today:

I promise not to intentionally lay out in the sun or use tanning beds.  I understand that by getting a tan I am putting myself at risk for developing melanoma, which can be fatal if not diagnosed early.

You Should Know…

  • Studies suggest that your risk of melanoma increases by 75% if you start using artificial tanning before you are 30 years old.
  • Examine your skin regularly, and have your skin checked by a dermatologist on an annual basis or attend one of Melanoma Know More’s FREE monthly skin cancer screening clinics
  • Melanoma rates have increased in the last three decades. About 76,000 U.S. adults will be diagnosed with the cancer-type this year. About 9,200 are expected to die from the disease.
