      Why we are raising awareness:

      Skin cancer is often labelled as Australia's national cancer but it is also described as the most preventable. 

      Many don't realise that not all fabrics protect the same from the sun. Did you know that a regular white cotton t-shirt may have the equivalent protection of wearing SPF5 sunscreen? All Solbari products have the highest sun protective rating available in the world for fabrics and are tested in Australia with a UPF50+ certification, which is the equivalent to wearing SPF50+ sunscreen all day long. 

      According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, sun protective clothing, sun hats, UPF50+ accessories, sunglassesand sunscreen are the best ways to help prevent skin cancer. 

      * By sending your story and picture to Solbari, you give Solbari consent to publish your story and picture to Solbari's website and Solbari's Facebook page.

      ** Terms and conditions apply. Submit your story by Thursday 28th March 2019 at 11.59pm. 10 stories will be randomly selected and entrants will be notified and sent their $75 voucher on Saturday 30th March 2019. Vouchers are valued at USD$75 each. Cannot be exchanged for cash. Not valid in conjunction with other promotions or offers. Voucher needs to be redeemed in 1 transaction before 27.04.2019.

      Having grown up in a very active family, from a very early age I was participating in team sports whether it be football, tee-ball or cricket. My parents taught me the importance of using sun cream and zinc to protect my face, but also the benefit of wearing a long sleeve shirt to cover my arms, and a bucket hat or broad brim hat to keep the sun off my neck and ears.

      It wasn't until I retired and relocated to Queensland from Victoria that I discovered that yearly skin checks were important. Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in Australia. I was shocked to be diagnosed with a squamous cell cancer on my forearm and shortly after, a Basal Cell on my throat.

      My melanoma was initially on the white of the eye, it started off as a red spot that looked like a burst blood vessel... something my mum noticed when I was young and although we asked about it over the years no one seemed to be phased. When I was in my later teens the spot had become highly vascularised, raised and red, and I was sent to an ophthalmologist, where I had a biopsy done, this came back as benign.
