The Sun Bus Skin Cancer Screening and Sun Safety Education Tour
sponsored by EltaMD® Skin Care
EltaMD Skin Care and The Colorado Melanoma foundation are proud to deliver The Sun Bus, Colorado’s first mobile skin cancer screening clinic and classroom. With the help of Colorado’s medical professionals, cancer researchers and local community, The Sun Bus is on a mission to eliminate melanoma, the most prevalent and preventable skin cancer and bring sun safety education to the public.
About the Cause
Skin Cancer is one of the most common and most preventable types of cancer in the United States. Nearly 90% of melanomas, the most deadly type of skin cancer, are thought to be caused by exposure to Ultra Violet (UV) sunlight. Colorado's high altitude and abundant sunshine means that Colorado residents are exposed to higher amounts of UV sunlight than the rest of the nation. As a result, the annual rate of new skin cancer diagnosis in Colorado is significantly higher than the national average.
