Skin Cancer Doesn’t Take a Summer Vacation. Neither Do We.

Stay tuned for another incredible journey with Destination: Healthy Skin! Check back throughout the spring and summer for regular updates on all the places we go, the people we meet and the amazing stories we hear along the way.

In the meantime, here’s a recap of last year’s program:

Over the course of three months in 2018, the Destination: Healthy Skin RV traveled more than 12,000 miles around the country, stopping in 18 communities.

Fifty-three volunteer dermatologists from these communities performed 1,243 skin exams.  About 62 percent of the people we served had never seen a dermatologist for a screening before.

We also heard from doctors who volunteered, many of whom suspected they may have saved a life by performing screenings.

The physicians identified 350 potential skin cancers and precancers, including 19 suspected melanomas.

We’re so grateful for the support we received for Destination: Healthy Skin from our corporate partners and donors to our Buy a Mile campaign who help keep this lifesaving program on the road.
