Another Year On the Road In 2010, the Road to Healthy Skin Tour , presented by AVEENO ® and RITE AID, celebrated its third year providing free, full-body skin exams to men and women across the country. From March through September, 2010, the Tour bus (a 38-foot RV with two exam rooms) traveled 17,819 miles, with our volunteer dermatologists performing over 3,500 skin exams. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the US, and the most pre-ventable. During the Tour’s 84 stops in 23 states, dermatologists discovered more than 1,650 suspected cancers and precancers, including 83 poten-tially deadly suspected melanomas, 1,004 suspected actinic keratoses, 396 suspected basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), and 173 suspected squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). In Seattle, a dermatologist discovered two poten-tial melanomas, five suspected BCCs, and one suspected SCC all on the same person on September 12. The Foundation is constantly re-minded of just how meaningful the Tour is to people: At the Philadelphia stop on May 18, for example, there was a visitor who’d driven three hours through rain and traffic for a skin exam. Another patient, from Livonia, MI, said, “I haven’t had insurance in three years. I was laid off from the automotive industry, and have wanted to get this spot checked but was scared that if it was cancerous, it would af-fect my chances of getting insurance in the future. But I saw the doctor here — I’m fine, and now have peace of mind. Thank you so much.” We appreciate the extraordinary commitment that 137 dermatologists around the country made to The Skin Cancer Foundation by volunteering their time and expertise. The Tour received additional sup-port from Columbia Sportswear, DUSA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ® , Solar Gard ® Window Film, and Fitness magazine. The Foundation is always looking for volunteer dermatologists, and if you’re interested in joining us on the 2011 Tour, please contact Veronica Barlow, the Foundation’s Assistant Manager of Corporate Administration, at VBarlow@skincancer.org.
