Avoid the Burn!

As you get ready to take a beach or other outdoor vacation this summer, please remember to protect yourself and your children from sunburns! This article from the Huffington Post reminds us that just 5 sunburns between the ages of 15 and 20 increases your risk of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma by 68%. Risk of melanoma increases by 80%!

Don’t take a chance! A sunburn does not need to be a “rite of passage.”
