SafeSun™ is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of malignant melanoma and other life threatening forms of cancer of the skin. Our mission is to raise public awareness, beginning in early childhood years and continuing until adulthood, as well as linking state of the art skin cancer evaluation and care to those who cannot otherwise obtain it.
PROTECT YOUR SKIN, PROTECT YOUR LIFE!
Raising Awareness to Protect Your Skin
SafeSun™ was established to address the unrelenting steady rise in the incidence of life threatening skin cancers. We recognize the lack of adequate awareness of the dangers of sun exposure, and we target the elementary school population as well as middle and high school students for safe sun education. Furthermore, our funds go to support research into the multiple innovative treatments being designed to treat these cancers. Finally, we are benefactors of institutions and groups that care for patients diagnosed with these cancers.
Recipients of funds raised by SafeSun™ have included The Dermatology Clinic at the Caridad Center of the Palm Beaches, Melanoma Research at Moffitt Cancer Institute, Lynn Cancer Institute’s League of Ribbons, Boca West Children’s Foundation, Special Compass Power Buddies, Boca Raton High School Swim Team, Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation of the Palm Beaches, Florence Fuller Child Development Center, Melanoma Foundation of New England, and Dermatology Medical Missions.
