  • 5 or more sunburns during your lifetime doubles your risk of developing skin cancer
  • Sun protection is especially important in children because sunburns in early life can lead to skin cancer in adulthood
  • 80% of lifetime sun damage occurs in childhood
  • Melanoma is the second most common cancer in women ages 20-29; 1 person dies almost every hour (every 67 minutes) from this disease
  • Both Ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays can cause skin cancer. You can protect your skin and eyes in many different ways including a broad-spectrum sunscreen, seeking the shade, hats, sunglasses and sun protective clothing.
