  • Overview:
  • No Tan is Worth a Young Life -- Melanoma Facts
     Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is a proven human carcinogen
     One person dies of melanoma every hour.
     An estimated 9,710 people will die of melanoma in 2014.
     An estimated 76,100 new cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the US in 2014.
     Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon.
     About 86% of melanomas can be attributed to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
     On average, a person’s risk for melanoma doubles if he or she has had more than five sunburns.
     5 or more sunburns in youth increases lifetime melanoma risk by 80%.
     Regular daily use of an SPF 15 or higher sunscreen reduces the risk of developing melanoma by 50%.
     90% of pediatric melanoma cases occur in patients aged 10-19.
     Pediatric melanoma increases by an average of 2% per year.
     Diagnosis and treatment is delayed in up to 40% of childhood melanoma cases.
     The International Agency for Research on Cancer, an affiliate of the World Health Organization, includes ultraviolet (UV) tanning devices in its Group 1, a list of the most dangerous cancer-causing substances. Group 1 also includes agents such as plutonium, cigarettes, and solar UV radiation.
     People who first use a tanning bed before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 percent.
     Nearly 2 million teens tan indoors in the U.S. every year.

  • History:
  • Using both the EPA's Sun Wise Program and the John Wayne Cancer Foundation's Sun Safety Curriculum, the ACHMF team presents sun safety and melanoma awareness education to children, teens and their parents of any socio-economic background, but has placed an emphasis on those deemed to be at risk for more sun exposure than the average person. This population includes children and teens whose parents work in the agricultural industry - particularly in the fields planting and harvesting crops. These teens often start working along side their parents at a very young age and become severely sun exposed at a very early age. Therefore, to reduce the possibility of getting life-threatening skin cancer or melanoma it is extremely important that both the children and the parents learn the necessity of protecting their skin by the proper use of sun screen on a regular basis. A second emphasis has been placed on girls who will be at risk for tanning either in the sun or via tanning beds to get that sought-after bronze look that the media emphasizes as beautiful - when in reality tanning to be bronze not only ages the skin, but can have deadly consequences. The ACHMF team incorporates the YouTube video of 'Dear 16-year-old me" as part of the curriculum for this group of teens so they can see just how devastating the consequences can be.
