Take Me Out to the Ball Game
Skin cancer awareness has just reached new heights. The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and the Tampa Bay Rays are hosting the 2nd Annual Sun Safety Tour starting this Thursday. The skin cancer testing booths will be set up across a number of baseball stadiums all over Florida. The stands will screen skin cancer for baseball fans and patrons, hoping to detect early stages of cancer whilst promoting awareness and knowledge of the disease. Tampa Bay Online reported that, "Last year, Moffitt screened 695 people through the program and identified 108 suspected cancerous lesions and 264 suspected precancerous lesions." Hopefully such new promotions with the support of the MLB will help people learn about the dangers, symptoms, and treatments available for skin cancer, while also urging people to get checked regularly and apply sunscreen continuously - especially while at outdoor sporting events like baseball games.
