Dr. Ellen Marmur will Spread Skin Cancer Awareness to Laugavegur Trek, Iceland!
Did you know that at high altitudes, sun exposure is increased exponentially? Skin Cancer, Take a Hike!™ was launched by Dr. Ellen Marmur to raise funds to skin cancer prevention and detection. She dedicated 100% of her fundraising to the AAD’s SPOT Skin Cancer campaign.
Skin Cancer, Take a Hike! went viral with amazing dermatologists and their communities who have led hikes all over the world like Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Patagonia in South America, Denali in Alaska, and even one extreme adventurer has taken SCTAH to Mount Everest!
The goal is to show we can live our lives to the fullest, exercising, hiking, and enjoying the sun wisely! We are educating the public about skin cancer prevention and detection so we will help change behaviors and ultimately save lives.
With 8,500 people in the United States diagnosed with skin cancer every day, and with one American dying every single hour, it is vital to Dr. Marmur and the AAD to provide valuable education and awareness campaigns, access to shade structures, and free skin cancer screenings to reduce mortality rates. Join us to help reduce the incidence of skin cancer. No amount is too small!
You may have heard that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer. But did you know that when caught early, skin cancer has a 98% cure rate! That’s why raising awareness about skin cancer prevention and detection is so important to the members of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). It’s also why Marmur Medical is dedicating months of preparation and a week away from our work and families for this event. Please go ahead and click the “Donate” button now on the right to support our efforts!
Your 100% tax deductible donation to my hike will be so appreciated and will help the AAD:
- provide free skin cancer screenings for more people across the country, 1000's of skin checks!
- offer free resources to help teach kids and others how to protect their skin with SPF and clothing!
- build permanent shade for outdoor community spaces like parks and zoos to protect children!
