NATIONAL DON’T FRY DAY

NATIONAL DON’T FRY DAY

What a great awareness 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.

Unfortunately, skin cancer is increasing in the United States and the American Cancer Society estimates that one American dies every hour from skin cancer. The risk for ultraviolet (UV) damage of the skin increases as we spend more time enjoying the outdoors now that warmer weather is upon us. We need to take precautions when we are outside in the sun. Using a good sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, wearing sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat are a few ways to get started with sun safety.

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!

Before going into real estate in 2001, I worked in the medical field. Found it very rewarding helping others and decided to make a switch and help those, who want to achieve the "American Dream". As a homeowner, I know the importance of home ownership and nothing gives me more pleasure than to place those keys into the hands of a new homeowner. I look forward to helping you, with all your real estate needs.
