House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

Subject: Melanoma and Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month Resolution
In the near future, I plan to introduce a resolution designating May 2018 as "Melanoma and Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month" in Pennsylvania.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, with current estimates that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Recent estimates also show that there will be 161,790 new cases of melanoma diagnosed each year.

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. However, with early detection, melanoma and other skin cancers are highly treatable.

Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution to raise awareness about skin cancer, increasing the chances of early detection. It is vital that skin cancers, and especially melanoma, are treated early.

Introduced as HR852
