I have to say, Melanoma Monday was once again successful! Yes, there was a color war going on, but people talked about Melanoma. That's the most important thing! Talking leads to awareness. Awareness leads to early detection and prevention!
Here a few important things that happened today:
* Yahoo shared a great article about Melanoma
* Melanoma Girl shares her story!
* FDA considers attaching warning labels to tanning beds!
* And a big announcement: "Earlier today, in honor of melanoma Monday, L’Oreal Paris announced
that over the next three years they will donate over $750,000 to
Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA) to fund the new L’Oreal Paris-MRA Team
Science Award, led by internationally renowned cancer researcher Dr.
Meenhard Herlyn, to research ways to help prevent, cure and treat
melanoma. They have also kicked off a campaign encouraging people to
test their “Skin IQ” and reminding people that “skin cancer doesn’t care
what color your skin is.” (Source.)
Yep, I think it was a great Melanoma Monday!
