WHEREAS; It is imperative that communities across Canada be reminded of the importance of sun safety; and
 
WHEREAS;  Over-exposure to UV radiation is one of the major causes of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers; and
 
WHEREAS;  Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers. 1 in 6 Canadians born in the 1990s will get skin cancer in their lifetimes; and
 
WHEREAS;  Many people seek sun without taking the advisable precautionary measures and are unaware that any darkening of skin colour, including a tan, is indicative of UV damage; and
 
WHEREAS;  Skin self-examinations should be performed on a monthly basis because skin cancers are highly treatable when detected early; and
 
WHEREAS;  Save Your Skin Foundation is dedicated to the fight against non-melanoma skin cancers, melanoma and ocular melanoma through nationwide education, advocacy, and awareness initiatives.
 
THEREFORE, I, Jeff Lehman, Mayor of the City of Barrie, do hereby proclaim the month of May 2021 as “Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month.”
