After a weekend of rain and cold weather, the sun came out while our providers busily checked guests for any signs of skin cancer, referring them to one of our local offices if they did catch something suspicious. We were proud to end the day with the amazing news that we conducted 1,988 screenings, A Guinness World Records record breaker for the Most Skin Cancer Screenings in 8 hours.
One in five Americans will get skin cancer in their lifetime. Early detection is imperative for favorable outcomes. Melanoma can be deadly if not caught in time. With early detection of melanoma, there is a 99% survival rate. Don’t forget to schedule your annual skin screening!
