Comments from Valley Teens after a MAP presentation:
Palm Desert High Students -
"I learned what melanoma looks like and how to detect melanomas. The ABCDE's are an easy way to remember what melanoma looks like. I'm glad that they came in to talk to us because it really helped to know what to look for if I suspect melanoma."
"Melanoma is way darker than a freckle and looks like a huge mole."
"The presentation has raised my awareness of skin cancer and now I can help my relatives with early detection of skin cancer."
"I liked the presentation. Now I know I need to take care of my skin and wear sunblock."
"I learned that melanoma can appear more than once and it can show up anywhere on my body."
"I learned the shadow rule, when your shadow is bigger than you are it is a safe time to go in the sun."
"I will wear sunblock everyday now."
Cathedral City High Students -
