Skin Cancer Awareness Month
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and fortunately, it is also one of the most preventable. The majority of skin cancer cases are associated with exposure to harmful UV radiation from the sun and indoor tanning sources. By educating individuals about the importance of sun-safety, self-checks, and screening, we can help to save lives!
Here are some ways you can join our mission:
1. Become Familiar with Your Skin - The Sun Bus wants you to conduct a skin self-exam at home to check for anything new, changing, or unusual.
2. Raise Awareness Through Education - Check out our educational sun-safety content and share it with your family, friends, and colleagues. New content is shared through social media channels often. Check in with us periodically for sun safety facts and recommendations.
4. Help us Fund The Sun Bus - Make a donation in support of The Colorado Melanoma Foundation’s Sun Bus. Your gift funds The Sun Bus, which focuses on early detection and prevention of skin cancer.
5. Volunteer your time with The Sun Bus - We are always looking for volunteers to assist with sun safety education at community events. If you are interested in volunteering, check out our volunteer sign-up.
