Every first Monday in May is dedicated as “Melamona Monday,” a day to remind the public about the importance of sun protection. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, and melanoma is the deadliest form of the disease. That’s why it is vital that everybody, no matter what age or skin tone, use an SPF. Let’s all work together and raise awareness about the importance of sun protection this Melanoma Monday.
