This year, nearly 7,000 Americans will succumb to melanoma, a deadly skin cancer caused largely by unprotected exposure to UV rays from the sun. To fight the prevalence of this deadly cancer, the American Cancer Society reminds everyone to “Slip! Slop! Slap!® … and Wrap” when enjoying the summer sunshine.
• Slip on a shirt.
• Slop on sunscreen.
• Slap on a hat.
• Wrap on sunglasses to protect the eyes and sensitive skin around them.
You can find top-rated sunscreen at nearly any grocery store or pharmacy. There’s no reason to put yourself at risk. Embrace the SPF and enjoy your time outdoors.
