In Australia, we have the highest incidence worldwide of skin cancers, including deadly melanomas.
According to the Cancer Council of Australia, “approximately two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70, with more than 750,000 people treated for one or more non-melanoma skin cancers in Australia each year. … In 2013, 12,744 Australians were diagnosed with melanoma.” Sun sense starts early with a Commercial Shade Sail in your educational facility.
