Are you a sun goddess or dude who likes to catch a  couple of rays the moment the temperature in West Michigan rises above 40-degrees?

I do too and get a little crazy by either holding my arm out the window while I'm driving down the road, open my sun roof  or simply stand outside with my face directed toward the sun ... it feels sooo good after a long winter inside, doesn't it?!

Sorry to rain on your ray time because the month of May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month for the obvious reasons!  The good news is that you don't have to stay out of it -- you just have to be careful of how much you expose your skin to AND make sure you get yourself checked at one of several free skin cancer screenings planned especially for you.  It could be a matter of life or death, really!

Take the next five minutes to listen to respected West Michigan dermatologist Dr. Jack Dekkinga of the Skin Revitalizing Center about proper sunscreen, what to avoid when getting a tan, and where he and eight of his colleagues will be offering free skin screenings all this month. 

FOR A FULL LIST OF SKIN CANCER SCREENINGS GO TO:   www.skinrevitalizingcenter.com or call 616-486-6184. 

Remember, there is no charge for a screening and no appointment is necessary!
