John Wayne Cancer Foundation Block the Blaze – Youth Skin Cancer Education

PositiveDid you know that skin cancer is the most common cancer?   If caught early and treated quickly, melanoma is 95-100% curable.

Since 2003, the John Wayne Cancer Foundation has funded and managed our Skin Cancer Education Program through Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) Hyundai Cancer Institute and UC Irvine, which has recruited and trained volunteer college students to educate over 83,000 youth about skin cancer prevention and early detection.
