Protecting every Australian
Australia has the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Statistically, 1 in 2 Australians will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. In a country where the sun rarely stops shining, children and adults become vulnerable to harmful rays. Exposure to excessive sunlight from an early age without the necessary protection is extremely dangerous.
Established in 2009, we are committed to detecting skin cancer early and stopping it in its tracks. Most skin cancers are Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC)
and Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCC), but the rarer, more deadly Melanomas still account for 1000 deaths annually and are commonly found in the 18-45 age group. Fortunately, if Melanoma is detected early, the successful cure rate is 98% - 100%.
