Free resources for presenting a short
life-saving melanoma lesson to teen students

Why it is so important for your
students to receive this lesson

  • More than one in 50 Caucasian students will develop melanoma during their lives and only those who find it early will survive.
  • Melanoma is the most prevalent cancer in the 25 to 29 age group and second only to breast cancer among women of ages 20 to 39.
  • It is the easiest cancer to self-detect at an early stage but among the most malignant and incurable of all cancers if found late.
  • If they don't learn about melanoma before graduating from high school, students are unlikely to learn about it later.
