The Live SunSmart Foundation, formerly the Ray Festa Melanoma Foundation, was founded as a tribute to Ray Festa whose name means “Sun Party”! The Foundation seeks to promote healthy fun in the sun while raising awareness of skin cancer in order to save lives.
Skin cancer does not discriminate against color, race, ethnicity, age or gender. By changing your habits today, you will impact your health for the better and maintain your beauty longer.
In order to promote skin cancer awareness in our youth and throughout Essex County while reinforcing the importance that everyone wear sunscreen, we are proposing a Team SunSmart Weekend in the Super Essex Conference the weekend of September 12-13, 2014.We are hopeful that every school throughout the conference will participate and promote this initiative in any way.
By donating to the Live SunSmart Foundation, you are joining us in our mission to spread the word about the importance of skin cancer prevention and education. Early detection saves lives and your contribution goes a long way to help our cause. Please consider supporting Live SunSmart.
