Melanoma Monday: A Day of Awareness, Action, and Advocacy

The Story Behind Melanoma Monday

Melanoma Monday is an important part of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place every May. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) created this day to raise awareness specifically about the risks of melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer. It falls on the first Monday of May and aims to encourage communities to learn about prevention, early detection, and the latest treatment options for melanoma.

A Day for Education and Empowerment

The main objective of Melanoma Monday is to educate the public about the dangers of unprotected UV exposure and the importance of early detection of skin cancer. It serves as a reminder that regularly checking your skin can lead to the discovery of melanoma in its early and most treatable stages. Dermatologists worldwide participate in Melanoma Monday by offering free skin screenings and educational workshops, demystifying the disease and empowering individuals with the knowledge to protect themselves and their loved ones.

A Global Call to Take Action

Melanoma Monday has had a global impact, sparking international campaigns and initiatives that highlight the worldwide nature of this health challenge. With melanoma rates increasing in recent decades, this day has become more critical than ever. It acts as a catalyst for year-long efforts to fight skin cancer, promoting sun-safe habits, supporting research for innovative treatments, and finding strategies to cure melanoma. The global response to Melanoma Monday has demonstrated that awareness can lead to life-saving actions.

Why Melanoma Monday Matters to UV Skinz

Melanoma Monday holds a special place in the story of UV Skinz. Our founder, driven by the loss of her husband to this aggressive cancer, saw not only a personal calling but also a universal need. This loss highlighted a harsh reality: melanoma affects everyone, and it doesn't wait. That’s why every seam we stitch, every fabric we choose, and every product we ship aims to offer more than just sun protection—it’s a shield, a statement, and a step towards prevention.

More Than Just Our Biggest Sale—A Mission to Protect

Every Melanoma Monday we offer our largest sale of the season - 25% off everything on our site. Although this marks our biggest sale of the year, our purpose goes beyond commerce. This day is about making protective apparel accessible to all, especially with summer on the horizon. Our discounts are significant, but our commitment runs deeper. We aim to educate, outfit, and protect as many lives as possible from the harsh effects of UV exposure.

At UV Skinz, we are unwavering in our mission to integrate sun safety into daily life.
