Did you know that skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States?
Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are the most common cause of skin cancer, and July is UV Safety Month, which is sponsored by the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Skin cancer is preventable just by taking a few simple steps, but awareness is key. UV Safety Month encourages families, communities and organizations to work together to spread the word about the damaging effects of skin cancer and ways to prevent it from happening to you or someone you love.
