Protect Your Skin and Stand Up To Cancer

The summer sun is soon to be shining, but while you plan those beautiful beach weekends, remember to protect your skin. Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) and the Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA), have teamed up with Emmy® Award-winning celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis, who tragically lost her brother to melanoma.

SU2C, MRA, and Giada are raising awareness about the importance of protecting your skin, including always applying sunscreen and checking regularly for persistent blemishes or moles along with other changes in their skin. When caught early, the five-year survival rate for melanoma is 92%.

Watch the above video to hear Giada's story about her family's experience with melanoma, and be sure to always protect your skin.
