The Sun Is Not Your Friend

We don’t want to rain on your parade, but sunny days aren’t all fun and games. In 2019 alone, the American Cancer Society estimated that more than 96,000 Americans would be diagnosed with melanoma — and sun exposure is one of the leading causes. Join us (out of the sun) as we share important information about risk factors, diagnosis and treatment options for malignant melanoma and other skin cancers.
