Patient support is critical in the race to stop skin cancer. We dive into the insight and experience of Annette Cyr, a 3-time survivor of Melanoma and founder of the Melanoma Network of Canada, as she shares with terra20 her journey and how the organization is committed to providing support to patients and medical professionals in Canada.
Did you know that skin cancer is the most common of all cancer types?
One-third of all new cancer cases in Canada are skin cancers and numbers are increasing every day.
At terra20, we understand that awareness and prevention will contribute to slowing down the number of arising cases. This is why, during Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness month, we are proud to be a National Sponsor for the 13th annual Strides for Melanoma on May 29, 2022.
We want to help you get informed on how to protect yourself and your family, what skincare routines everyone should have in mind, what to look for in eco-responsible sunscreen products and how living a healthy lifestyle can help protect you and your loved ones.
On May 29th, 2022, join the terra20 team on a 5km walk around our community or donate to raise awareness about Melanoma and skin cancer.
