Did you know there are more than 3.5 million new cases of skin cancer diagnosed each year? Skin cancer has become a growing epidemic in America and the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention is encouraging you to protect your skin today and every day.

The National Council declares the Friday before Memorial Day, May 25, 2012 as “Don’t Fry Day” to promote sun safety awareness.

To help reduce rising rates of skin cancer from overexposure to the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun, “Don’t Fry Day” is a campaign designed to encourage sun safety awareness and to remind everyone to protect their skin while enjoying the outdoors.

Although no single step can fully protect you and your family from overexposure to UV radiation, follow as many of the recommended tips as possible:

•Generously apply sunscreen

•Seek shade whenever possbile

•Do not burn or tan

•Wear sun-protective clothing

•Use extra caution near water, sand or snow

•Get your dose of Vitamin D safely

The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention is a united voice to reduce skin cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality through awareness, prevention, early detection, research and advocacy.
