It's Melanoma Monday- Be aware and protect yourself!

Today is officially Melanoma Monday- the Academy of Dermatology wants you to be more aware of melanoma, and for good reason.  So many people have ignored the signs or just don't get checked for skin cancer- which is so important!  Early detection can save lives and open treatment options that in later stages won't work- take a moment to check out this information from the American Cancer Society on early detection-

When was the last time you were checked for skin cancer?  Have you or someone you have known been effected by skin cancer?
