Observed on the Friday before Memorial Day, Don't Fry Day serves as a timely reminder to protect our skin from the sun's harmful rays. Join us as we explore the history of this day, why it matters, and how you can join the sun-safe movement.

The History of Don't Fry Day

Don't Fry Day was established by the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention to raise awareness about the dangers of excessive sun exposure and promote sun-safe behaviors. This observance has become a vital initiative in the fight against skin cancer, the most common cancer in the United States today. By encouraging sun protection practices, Don't Fry Day aims to reduce the incidence of skin cancer and ultimately, save lives.
