We #GetNaked to Save Our Lives

May 10, 2018 | Categories: Causes, News, Patient Stories, Prevention

 

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, claiming the lives of 10,000 Americans every year, but this doesn’t have to be the case. When it is caught early, survival rates can be upwards of 90 percent. That’s why regularly checking your skin for suspicious-looking moles is so important, and why the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) has been encouraging you to #GetNaked since 2014 through an award-winning early detection campaign. 

This year, in honor of May’s Melanoma Awareness Month, the MRF is unveiling a new look for the #GetNaked campaign. And this time, we’re featuring real heroes with real stories of perseverance and bravery in the face of a melanoma diagnosis.
