'Melanoma Monday' aims to raise awareness in Milwaukee

Deadliest form of skin cancer
Posted at 11:42 AM, May 07, 2018

'Melanoma Monday' aims to raise awareness and encourage early prevention for the deadliest form of skin cancer.

Ann Harrington, founder of Ann's Hope Foundation, and cancer survivor Jennifer Birney join us to shine a light on skin cancer. 

One of the simple things you can do to prevent the disease is to apply sunscreen. Last year, Ann and Jennifer helped set a Guinness World Record by gathering the most people to apply sunscreen at the same time -- 1,822 to be exact.

Looking for ways to get involved in the fight against skin cancer? Block Melanoma, a 5k at the Milwaukee County Zoo, will be on May 20.
