During his battle with melanoma, {Darren} loved reading about the legends of the koi and their powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by their ability to swim against currents and even travel upstream.

This is an exciting time for UV Skinz CEO, Rhonda Sparks, and her team, as the company announces the launch of their new 2016 Spring Line, featuring their exclusive Koi Collection. The Koi Collection was inspired by Darren’s artwork. During his battle with melanoma, he loved reading about the legends of the koi and their powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by their ability to swim against currents and even travel upstream.” Rhonda explains. “They are a symbol of longevity, perseverance, strength and courage; attributes Darren held on to during his battle with skin cancer.”

Darren struggled with a difficult 5 year battle with the deadly skin cancer, before passing way in September of 2001. After Darren’s death, Rhonda became ultra-conscious of needing to make sure their three young boys were protected from the sun, and eventually was driven to create a UPF 50+ sun protective clothing line that would protect the entire family from dangerous UV radiation while enjoying the outdoors. “The goal isn’t to create fear among families, but rather to educate them on sun safety while providing them with reliable sun protection they enjoy wearing outdoors. Darren loved being outside and we want to encourage other families to get outside too!” The new UPF 50+ line adds several new products and styles to the company’s already extensive selection of UPF 50+ Sun and Swimwear.
