And according to the Skin Cancer Foundationsfigures, two in every 100 Americans will contract the disease over the course of their lifetimes. Of those diagnosed, two are expected to die roughly every two hours. So why not purchase apop up tentand help spread the word?
Consider setting up a pop-up tent at the beach or another area where people are apt to be catching some rays. Then encourage everyone you see to wear sunblock clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats. If someone you know sells these types of items, ask them to set-up a pop up tent nearby too. That way, people may have an opportunity to purchase sun protection materials on the spot.
While you are doing so, remind them that all it takes is five badsunburnsto increase the likelihood that theyll be one of the people diagnosed with skin cancer.
