Surprisingly, a new study found children of melanoma survivors are not receiving the best possible protection from ultraviolet radiation (the primary cause of skin cancer), despite an increased risk of developing #melanoma  themselves. 

Help us {SPREAD THE WORD} on the importance of sun protective clothing, and ensure all children are adequately protected! #advocate   #sunsafety

Introduction
The New Standard in Sun Protection. Providing Peace-of-Mind Fun in the Sun through our line of UPF Certified 50+ Sun Protection Clothing and Accessories. 

UV Skinz, Inc. was founded in 2006 after creator and CEO, Rhonda Sparks, lost her 32-year-old husband, Darren, to melanoma. It was this devastating loss, as well as being left to raise their three young boys on her own, that gave Rhonda the drive to increase awareness about skin cancer, and the life-saving benefits of protecting oneself—and loved ones—from deadly UV radiation. Through her loss, Rhonda was able to create UV Skinz, Inc: a sun protective product line that allows the entire family to practice sun safety, while also providing them with the convenience and peace-of-mind to enjoy life while having fun in the sun. In addition to providing high quality sun protection apparel, UV Skinz, Inc. sponsors and donates to hundreds of skin cancer awareness organizations and events annually.
