The Sun is Not Your Friend: Protect Your Skin from Melanoma and Skin Cancer 
As summer approaches, remember that the sun, while warm and inviting, can be harmful to your skin. UV radiation from the sun can cause melanoma and other skin cancers, affecting all skin types – from light to dark.
Protect yourself and your loved ones with these tips:
👉🏿 1. Use Sunscreen: Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+. Reapply every 2 hours, and after swimming or sweating.
👉🏾 2. Seek Shade: Stay in the shade during peak sun hours (10 AM - 4 PM).
👉🏽 3. Wear Protective Clothing: Long sleeves, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses are your friends.
👉🏼 4. Avoid Tanning Beds: They expose your skin to harmful UV radiation.
👉🏻 5. Inspect Your Skin Regularly: Watch for new or changing moles or spots. Early detection is key.
Your skin is your body's largest organ – take care of it!

I lost my 41 year old son to melanoma a year and a half ago. This cancer is so preventable! Knowing the signs would have saved his life. He saw something on his arm getting bigger. Something not there before. He fought like a warrior for three years. Your advice is very good and very true.
