Melanoma Know More – August 2021 Charity of the Month

What is melanoma?  “Melanoma is the most aggressive and potentially life-threatening of the three most common types of skin cancer.”

Fifteen years ago, most of us at Frame USA didn’t even know really what melanoma was.  We found out the hard way, by losing a local young man in our Cincinnati area to his battle with melanoma.  Andy Caress was diagnosed with melanoma at the young age of 24, and lost his fight just a week before his 25th birthday.  His family and friends created the Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation in his honor, and in 2019, they joined forces with Melanoma Know More. 

“Melanoma Know More strives to reduce the impact of melanoma through awareness, education, support of medical research, and assistance to persons affected by melanoma.”

At Frame USA, we believe knowledge is power.  We encourage you to learn more about melanoma at https://melanomaknowmore.com/, and to have yearly skin checks.

In mid-August, the Sunscreen Squad will make their annual appearance at the Western and Southern Open Tennis Tournmant in Mason, OH.  The Sunscreen Squad will pass out FREE sunscreen to spectators, and encourage sun safety.  For the entire month of August 2021 on frameusa.com, $0.75 from every online frame order will be donated to Melanoma Know More.
