Inside The Skin Cancer Foundation
We love hearing about the unique ideas people come up with to support The Skin Cancer Foundation, but we never expected to hear that people would be willing to eat something that tastes like dirty socks to help fund our work. That’s just what the Colorado State Patrol has inspired others to do with their #EatTheBean Challenge.
Another Skin Cancer Awareness Month may have come and gone, but a month later we’re still thinking about some of the great fundraising events held to support The Skin Cancer Foundation!
Knowledge is power. The skin is the largest organ, and it’s all out there where you can see it. So the more you learn about skin cancer and what to look for, the more you can do to help yourself.
Every day at The Skin Cancer Foundation, we hear from individuals who want to get involved and support our mission. Some have had skin cancer and want to share their stories. Others have lost a loved one to the disease and want to raise money in their memory. These individuals help us reach more people […]
Each year, we award several grants to dermatology residents, fellows and young faculty to fund research and clinical studies related to skin cancer. This year, the Todd Nagel Memorial Award was given to Dr. William Damsky, researcher at Yale University, for his study “Elucidating and Overcoming Mechanisms of Immunotherapy Resistance in Melanoma.”
Did you know that one in five Americans will have skin cancer during the course of a lifetime? It’s OK if you didn’t — this statistic isn’t necessarily common knowledge.
