Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States with more than 3.5 million skin cancers diagnosed in over two million Americans each year. Additionally, one American loses their life to melanoma every hour.  As a result, Senator Jack Reed (D-RI), Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and Congressman John Dingell (D-MI) recently introduced the Sunscreen Innovation Act (H.R. 4250/S. 2141) to alleviate the current 12 year backlog of sunscreen ingredients, and provide Americans access to new and innovative sunscreen products. This is a meaningful step forward in the fight against skin cancer.

How You Can Help: Ask your representative and senators to support the Sunscreen Innovation Act. Senators Jack Reed (D-RI), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Congressmen Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and John Dingell (D-MI) are calling upon their colleagues to become cosponsors of the legislation and pass the Sunscreen Innovation Act as soon as possible. Contact your representative and senators and ask them to cosponsor H.R. 4250 in the House of Representatives and S. 2141 in the Senate.
