Skin cancer can be dramatically reduced through education which is what the Florida Skin Center seeks to do through the Take Your Skin to a Better Place 5K in our community. Melanoma is one of the most preventable—yet deadliest—forms of skin cancer. Those of us who love and enjoy the Florida sun and the outdoors, especially kids and teens, are susceptible to this disease.
Statistically, one person dies every hour from melanoma. Skin cancer is the most common cancer - one in five Americans will develop skin cancer. Since its founding in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation has set the standard for educating the public and the medical profession about skin cancer, its prevention by means of sun protection, the need for early detection, and prompt, effective treatment.
