WENATCHEE — Erin Cass, executive director of Wellness Place, has announced that they are participating in UV Safety Month in an effort to help raise awareness about the risks of sun damage and invites everyone to take action to prevent skin cancer and reduce the risk of UV damage.

According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are the main cause of skin cancer. UV damage can also cause wrinkles and blotches or spots on your skin. Over the past three decades, more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of their lifetime. If possible, stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., use sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher, cover up with long sleeves and a hat and check your skin regularly for changes.
