Global push to eradicate skin cancer starts May with the official launch of the Orange Sticker and OrangeSticker.org. One in five of us will get skin cancer
GLENVIEW, IL, USA, April 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The global push to eradicate skin cancer starts this May with the official launch of the Orange Sticker and OrangeSticker.org. One in five of us will get skin cancer – but unlike other forms of cancer, skin cancer is preventable. The Orange Sticker is a global awareness social media campaign reminding us that we have the power to prevent this disease. Wearing the Orange Sticker is a supportive and fun way for people from all backgrounds to share their commitment to “Stick it to Skin Cancer.”
For the first time, all skin cancer charities and organizations will be supported and united under one umbrella: OrangeSticker.org. May is Melanoma Awareness Month as well as the official kick off to summer, which makes it a perfect opportunity to empower the public with preventative measures and knowledge. Imagine how many lives would be saved if even for this one upcoming summer, individuals protected themselves and their children from damaging sun exposure.
To make a splash this summer and “Stick it to Skin Cancer,” OrangeSticker.org is rewarding people who show off their commitment to safe sun by wearing the Orange Sticker (which is available for free from OrangeSticker.org). Every person who uploads a photo with the Orange Sticker can enter a drawing for an all-expenses-paid family trip to Disney Land. Once OrangeSticker.org reaches 100,000 photos a winner will be chosen at random – and four skin cancer charities (which will be chosen over the summer) will receive $100,000 total.
It couldn’t be simpler to participate in this global awareness challenge:
