Skin Cancer Awareness Month
Melanoma, one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer, is the most diagnosed cancer among women ages 20 to 35. With this in mind, Wallaroo Hat Company proudly partners with the Melanoma Research Foundation and the Skin Cancer Foundation to continue our mission of eliminating the threat of skin cancer through education and prevention. Research suggests that 90% of melanoma cases are linked to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Taking preventative measures can reduce up to 90% of melanoma cases. Seeking shade whenever possible, wearing UPF protective hats and clothing, avoiding direct sunlight during peak hours, and using a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day can greatly minimize the risk of melanoma.
