Melanoma Awareness: Get Screened for Skin Cancer Yearly! by Paula Bendfeldt-Diaz

Melanoma Awareness: Get Screened for Skin Cancer Yearly!

My grandfather had skin cancer and my mother also has skin problems and has to be extra careful with the sun. Naturally, I take skin care very seriously. Getting a skin cancer screening every year can save your life. One American dies of melanoma almost every hour. 

Nonetheless, skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers and, with early detection, it's usually curable. You don't have to spend money either - just do a quick search online for free skin cancer screenings and you will most likely find one near you. Don't wait! Schedule yours today.
