San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2012

Each year nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with this dreaded disease and more than 40,000 will die. Breast cancer is not selective in whom it strikes. Women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds are affected; even men.

SunGrubbies.com feels strongly about the LLBC mission and will donate five dollars from every purchase of their Breast Cancer Hat or Breast Cancer Visor to LBBC. These great hats are perfect for participating in breast cancer walks to find a cure.

Radiation therapy is one treatment prescribed for breast cancer. It is extremely important to protect skin that has been exposed to radiation therapy from the sun. SunGrubbies.com is pleased to carry Radx, a sunscreen that was developed especially for people undergoing radiation procedures. Radiation burns and irritates skin and these treatments can leave skin very sensitive for up to three years. Skin may even remains vulnerable after treatments have been concluded. Radx helps to heal the redness, irritation and burning. In addition, it relieves pain and replenishing moisture to damaged skin.

While breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women, skin cancer ranks number one with both men and women.

For those participating in Breast Cancer Walks, it is important to remember to protect skin from excessive sun exposure. Sun protection should be a daily regimen, so remember these tips before heading out:

  •     Protect your head, ears and necks by wearing a wide brim hat of at least three inches.

  •     Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that will protect against both types of ultraviolet rays. Remember to apply twenty minutes before going outside and to reapply every few hours. This is especially important because of perspiration.
  •     Cover up by wearing clothes that have been rated sun protective (UPF) or have a tight weave. A simple test is to hold an item up to the light. If the light comes through, then so will UV rays.
  •     Sun umbrellas will provide portable shade. It will protect rain or shine.
