SHADE Foundation of America
As the executive director of the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention and former board member of the SHADE Foundation, I am pleased to share my experiences with SHADE and highly recommend this foundation as a leader in developing sun safety awareness and an advocate for skin cancer prevention. The SHADE Foundation displays passion for educating our children about sun safety and are committed in spreading the message to prevent skin cancer.
I have worked with the SHADE Foundation for the past seven years and served on their board of directors for three years. During my involvement with SHADE they have demonstrated perseverance and determination, experienced growth, and narrowed their focus as an organization to capitalize on their resources and to best serve the public.
The SHADE Foundation is also an active member of the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention. The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention is the united voice of 45 organizations, associations, and agencies dedicated to reducing skin cancer morbidity and mortality in the United States. The National Council members represent some of the nation’s premier researchers, clinicians and advocates for melanoma and skin cancer prevention. The SHADE Foundation is one of the premier leaders within the National Council and has earned the respect of other members by their innovation and involvement in developing a national sun safety poster contest for children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would recommend that they not make changes to their mission. I would recommend they stay true to their current direction, extend and refine their poster contest, and involve more organizations to participate and promote their contest.
