November 2020 Newsletter

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, our hearts are full of gratitude. We are thankful that more people than ever before understand the dangers of skin cancer and protect their skin from harmful UV rays.

In the face of an unforeseen global pandemic, we are grateful for the opportunity to provide you with digital skin cancer education, expanded patient support resources and answers to your questions about COVID-19 and skin health.

Every good thing we do, is all because of you! From the early days of the pandemic, to Skin Cancer Awareness Month and the summer sun safety season, you shared skin cancer facts and amplified our messages about early detection and sun protection. Thank you for being a part of our active, growing community of healthy skin champions.

We wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.

SCF Thanks You
