 Melanoma Monday at LMHS
 

Linn-Mar High School Student Council, in cooperation with local health experts, set up a display informing students and staff of the dangers of skin cancer. It included a machine that looked for sun damage on a person's face. Students were also invited to sign a pledge for this year's Melamona Monday theme, "I've got your back". It encourages everyone to use the buddy system to help identify suspicious looking spots on their partner's back. The American Academy of Dermatogy says skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and it it estimated that one person dies from melanoma every hour.
