The Skin Cancer Foundation is celebrating its 40 years of service! For 37 of those years, our annual magazine, The Skin Cancer Foundation Journal, has been sharing advice from experts on skin cancer prevention, early detection and treatment, as well as personal stories from those who have experienced skin cancer. It also highlights the Foundation’s members, donors, programs and events that all support our efforts to fight the world’s most common cancer.
In this special issue, we are celebrating our past accomplishments as well as taking readers ahead of the curve into the future. Some issue highlights:
