SHADE Foundation of America
June 27, 2011

I have been involved with the SHADE Foundations since 2002. Since that time I have seen the tremndous impact they have had on educating the public with a focus on children. Skin Cancer is often dismissed as a "low-risk" cancer yet the truth is skin cancer will impact over 1,000,000 people in the U.S. this year alone. Through SHADE Foundations' educational programs lives are saved.

I am proud of their ability to use limited resources to reach millions of young lives. Perhaps with their programs we can soon see a major impact in the number of young adults disgnosed with skin cancer each year.

Give them more resources to further expand the programs as all of them are very worthwhile.
