A Lifesaving Road Trip!
Summer 2019 was a busy and successful one for Destination: Healthy Skin! We traveled 10,000 miles around the country, providing more than 1,800 free skin cancer screenings along with educational information and sun protection products to thousands more people in 18 cities.
Our volunteer dermatologists identified more than 578 potential skin cancers and precancers, including 40 suspected melanomas.
Here are some comments from participants, describing what the experience meant to them:
“This is an incredible service to offer. Thanks!” – participant in El Cajon, CA
“I probably would not have a screening this year without this service. Thanks!” – participant in Austin, TX
Next spring and summer, we will hit the road again! Our goals are simple:
- Detect skin cancers early, before they become dangerous.
- Deliver prevention education to help reduce the incidence of the world’s most common cancer.
We hope you’ll join us on our journey to the ultimate destination: healthy skin for all.
