National Skin Cancer Action Week: 19-25 November
With two in three Australians diagnosed with skin cancer by age 70, the action week is an important reminder of sun protection and early skin cancer detection for all Australians.
More than 2,000 people in Australia die from skin cancer each year, and Cancer Council estimates that Australia spends more than $1 billion per year treating skin cancer, with costs increasing substantially over the past few years.
Yet most skin cancers can be prevented by the use of good sun protection.
To encourage Australians to remember to use the five forms of sun protection, we are inviting everyone to join the #SunSmartGeneration.
Today’s children have grown up with the SunSmart message and are our most sun savvy generation ever. Parents understand the importance of protecting their little one’s skin with rashies, hats, sunglasses, shade and sunscreen. However, it’s important that adults protect their own skin too. It’s never too late to prevent further damage and parents play an important role in setting a good example for their kids.
That’s why this National Skin Cancer Action Week, Australians of all ages are urged to use the five forms of sun protection.
These are to:
- slip on sun-protective clothing
- slop on SPF30 (or higher) broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen
- slap on a broad-brimmed hat
- seek shade
- slide on sunglasses.
A combination of these measures, along with getting to know your skin and regularly checking for any changes, are the keys to reducing your skin cancer risk.
Our partnership with Cancer Council Australia.
MotorOne, now in its 15th year of partnership with Cancer Council Australia, is very proud to announce that we have raised over $4.4 million for Cancer Council through the sales of our endorsed window films.
The relationship between MotorOne and Cancer Council was initiated in 2002 in Victoria, and has since evolved into an exclusive national licensing agreement with Cancer Council Australia. In line with Cancer Council’s stringent testing and evaluation for any endorsed product, Cancer Council Window Films have been independently tested by ARPANSA (Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency) resulting in the highest possible UPF rating of 50+.
