I missed the 1st Monday. This past Saturday, I had my first-ever skin cancer screening at a free community event. All clear! I have been wearing UVA-UVB sunblock pretty regularly since my early 20s--over 20 years now.
Courage comes from the Old French for "heart". To be courageous literally means to do something heart-felt.
As a way to raise awareness of melanoma and other types of skin cancer, and to encourage early detection through self-exams, the American Academy of Dermatology designates the first Monday in May as Melanoma Monday®.
