Melanoma Rates Rising in U.S. Children

Cancer is just absolutely awful, but a child with cancer is just completely heartbreaking. That is why this latest child skin cancer finding was so disheartening. From Health Day:

“Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, doesn’t usually occur in kids, but a new study shows that it’s happening more often. … the rate increased by about 2 percent per year from 1973 to 2009 among U.S children from newborns to age 19. Melanoma accounts for up to 3 percent of all pediatric cancers, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.”

Here at SwimZip our President, Betsy Johnson, is a skin cancer survivor and UV sun protection is our highest priority. Our swimwear is rated UPF 50+ and blocks 99% of those nasty, cancer causing UVA and UVB rays. Remember doctors have found a link between UV exposure in childhood and skin cancer later in life. Just one bad sunburn can dramatically increase a child’s chance of skin cancer later on.
