Your June Issue of QuickConnects

Posted By Administration, Friday, July 19, 2019
Happy Summer My Friends! Is it hot in here or is it just me? I’m no Meteorologist but yeah, it’s hot…whew! Heat index in Florida this past week was 100-110! I’m sure many of you are feeling it all around. I’m also not a Dermatologist but I am a high-risk skin cancer survivor and I owe it all to awareness! Please, don’t forget to protect yourself when out in the blazing sun. It’s a dangerous creature and our skin is fragile. Skincancer.org says, “Sunscreens should be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure to allow the ingredients to fully bind to the skin. Reapplication of sunscreen is just as important as putting it on in the first place, so reapply the same amount every two hours.”

As an auction donor, Bob Kobek (CustomerCount ®) ) was randomly selected to designate the charity that C.A.R.E. would donate 5% of 2019 Conference Auction proceeds to and he selected the Dean Hedstrom Foundation for Melanoma Awareness (thank you Bob). Our auction was in May, which was also Melanoma Awareness Month, so his timing could not have been more perfect to select this foundation as the benefactor. I’m also a board member of this great foundation and we regularly use the American Academy of Dermatology Association’s website (www.aad.org ) for resources to share at our events to raise awareness. Their awareness campaign this year was “Do you wear protection?” and “Practice safe sun” . If you answered no, please visit this website and learn more about the dangers of the sun and harmful UV rays (natural or artificial) and how to protect yourself.  READ MORE
