Research shows that patients, not doctors, are most likely to spot melanoma. The Melanoma Research Foundation encourages you to thoroughly check your skin each month for moles that are new, changing or different than other spots on your body. Our educational piece, "Who is the Most Likely to Spot Your Melanoma?", is a great tool for promoting monthly self-skin exams. If you are interested in helping us spread the word, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request your free copies.
Take a Stand, Don’t Tan
You might think of a tan as a “healthy glow,” but did you know there is no such thing as a “safe” or “healthy” tan? That fake bake from indoor tanning can give you pre-mature wrinkles and skin cancer – including melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer.
Our Take a Stand, Don't Tan poster would look great in your classroom, school or doctor's office! Request free copies by emailing email@example.com. Students in your school may also be interested in Taking the Pledge to avoid tanning in the sun and tanning beds. In addition:
- Learn the truth about tanning
- Witness the physical impact of melanoma by looking through our melanoma scar gallery
- Get involved in the fight against melanoma
Our advocates are also working tirelessly to change public perception of tanning and sun safety, and to urge city, state and federal decision makers to regulate indoor tanning devices.
