SunGrubbues.com Joins the Fight Against Breast Cancer
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
SunGrubbies.com, an online retailer of sun protection products, is pleased to announce that they will donate five dollars from every purchase of their pink Breast Cancer Walk Hat or Visor to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national support group that empowers women affected by breast cancer to live the best quality of life for as long as possible.
Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women with skin cancer ranking as the number one type for both men women.
Walks that benefit research and show support for victims and survivors occur all over the country. However, prolonged sun exposure during these walks exposes participants to the dangers of UV (ultraviolet) rays and training periods are no exception. SunGrubbies.com owner and outdoor enthusiast, Marta Phillips, relates a story of a friend who felt wearing a white tee shirt would provide adequate sun protection for her upper body during training walks. Unfortunately, she was amazed to find freckles on her back after only a short period time. Since she never got a sunburn or tan, she was unaware of the minimal protection that a white tee shirt provides: only blocking three to five percent of UV rays.
Sun damage is cumulative and the results of excessive exposure can sometimes take years to surface. For ultimate sun protection, combine sun protective products such as wide brim hats, UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) clothing and sunscreen with sun safe measures. That means avoiding the sun between the hours of 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. and seeking shade whenever possible. Exposure can be lessened by using a sun umbrella during these peak hours.
