Up to 3 million people get skin cancer every year globally; that is 1 in 5 Americans. Melanoma is the deadliest of all skin cancers accounting for the vast majority of skin cancer deaths. To help make a difference, Prosmetica is launching a charity campaign in collaboration with the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund. From April 2nd to May 31st, we will fight melanoma by raising awareness. We will also donate 15% of our profits towards melanoma prevention and research. You can help too! Make a small $5.00 donation and/or buy your product of choice to save lives from melanoma.
What Is Melanoma Exactly..?
Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that occurs in the melanocytes (the cells that give your skin & hair its color). It happens when the melanocytes' DNA is damaged, either due to genetics or (most commonly) ultraviolet radiation from sunlight. It is a malignant and deadly form of skin cancer that continues to rise in incidence every year.
Can It Be Cured?
Currently there is no cure for melanoma. The good news is that research is advancing rapidly (however there is a need for continued funding!). Plus, melanoma can be prevented by protecting your skin from UV rays.
