  • Fight cancer: Be kind to the skin you're in

    The first Sunday shower of the month is an important one in my house. That's the morning I give my Nordic skin a careful examination. I twist and turn my torso while gazing into a mirror, examining areas I don't normally explore, like the soles of my feet, eyelids, the skin between my toes and all those places where the  sun doesn't shine. You get the picture.

    I'm looking for possible signs of skin cancer and my monthly Sunday routine might one day save my life. You should consider doing something similar.

    Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers, afflicting more than a million Americans each year, a number that is rising rapidly. It is also the easiest to cure, if diagnosed and treated early. When allowed to progress, however, skin cancer can result in disfigurement and even death.
