May is Melanoma Awareness Month

It's the month of May. The weather is getting nicer. You and your friends are flocking to the sunshine. Are you consciously and actively putting on sunscreen? Wearing hats? Sporting sunglasses? As wonderful as the sun feels, remember that its rays can be deadly to your skin.

When you go to your favorite salon to try that new summer hairdo, find out if the salon's professionals have been trained to identify potential melanoma skin cancers. After all, you get your hair done more often than you visit your dermatologist! It doesn't hurt to get all the help you can get to stay vigilant and take care of your skin. 

The You Can Make a Difference Foundation is doing what it can to work with beauty industry professionals to identify potential skin cancer melanomas. You can help too by spreading the word and donating today.
