Don't Fry Day

Each year on the Friday before Memorial Day, it is National Don’t Fry Day. The goal of National Don’t Fry Day is to raise awareness of all the risks of overexposure to the sun. It is important for everyone to remember to use good sun protection and sun safety practices.

a day of awareness started by the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention. The Friday before Memorial Day was chosen because Memorial Day Weekend is viewed by many as the unofficial start to summer, and millions of Americans will be participating in events outside. The goal is to raise sun safety awareness so people take the necessary precautions to reduce their risks of skin cancer.

Skin cancer is curable if it is found early. Be aware of changes on your skin with growths and in moles. See your doctor if you have any concerns. Be safe!
