Skin Cancer Awareness Month
Skin cancer is threatening the lives of thousands of people each year. Help us to reduce the number of people affected by this disease by raising awareness of the dangers of UV rays.
Skin cancer (Malignant Melanoma) is the fifth most common cancer in the UK. On average 13,000 cases are diagnosed every year. In the North West on average 1,416 skin cancer cases are diagnosed each year – with 295 of these cases coming from Merseyside.
During May we’re challenging you to take part in our #suncreamselfie campaign. Whether you showcase your sun cream in stripes, spirals or stars, we’d like to see your best selfie.
How can I get involved?
To show your support post your #suncreamselfie on Facebook and Twitter. Along with your donation amount and our web address: www.nwcr.org. Once you’ve posted your selfie, don’t forget to nominate your friends and text SKIN10 and your donation amount to 70070 (e.g. SKIN10 £10 to 70070).
