Get your sunscreen ready, because the Friday before Memorial Day (May 27, 2011) is “Don’t Fry Friday.” The American Cancer Society, along with the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention, reminds you to protect your skin as you head outdoors to kick off the summer season. Be sure to use plenty of suncreen (SPF 15 or higher), wear clothing that limits the amount of skin exposed, cover your head with a hat, and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and the skin around them.
For more details on how to stay well by preventing skin cancer or finding it early, contact your American Cancer Society anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org online.
Two weeks after “Don’t Fry Friday,” committee and team members and volunteers will be working all day to set up the site for the Madison-Iron County Relay For Life. Everyone please use all the protective suggestions given above for this long day as well.
