Jacob Rojek, 7B…Helping to Find a Cure!

“Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer that affects 2 million people and kills over 10,000 people in the US every year. Most forms of skin cancer are from the ultraviolet rays of the sun and can be prevented. I go to the beach a lot, and see people of all ages tanning and not applying sunscreen or wearing hats. It’s frustrating to see so many people abuse their skin everyday. One of my closest friends recently lost his grandfather to skin cancer. I chose to donate $50 to the Skin Cancer Foundation because they help spread awareness of the damaging effects of the sun. I hope that my donation will help the foundation continue their efforts in educating people on skin cancer prevention.”
