TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - The Skin Cancer Institute at the University of Arizona Cancer Center is running a month-long Melanoma Awareness Mystery Tour leading up to their 9th Annual Living in Harmony With the Sun event at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum on Saturday, May 31 from 5:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Through generous donations, the Skin Cancer Institute has coordinated various events and auction items, which are being revealed on the Skin Cancer Institute's official Facebook page throughout the month of May. All proceeds from this online auction directly benefit the Skin Cancer Institute in supporting skin cancer research, education and community outreach in Tucson. Auction items and event programs are set to be revealed on the Skin Cancer Institute's Melanoma Awareness Mystery Tour Facebook app.
Legendary musician Kenny Rogers recently had skin cancer removed and is supporting the cause by donating autographed memorabilia with the auction items. Kenny Rogers recently reminded his Facebook fans to "get checked" as part of National Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month. Recording artist Charlie Faye is offering her song "It's A Fighter" as a free download to everyone who signs up for Melanoma Awareness Mystery Tour updates throughout the month.
The Melanoma Awareness Mystery Tour and Living in Harmony with the Sun both aim to educate Tucson residents and visitors about the dangers of sun overexposure, and teach everyone how to enjoy Arizona's approximately 350 days of sunshine each year without accumulating skin damage. The work they are doing is so important that the Arizona Daily Star included "sunscreen" in the May 21st edition of "Tucson in 100 Objects" editorial series featuring the Protect Your Skin Kit Program.
