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.
