THESE WOMEN WANT TO SAVE YOUR LIFE. BY SAV­ING YOUR SKIN.

InStyle (USA) - - Beauty -

Me­lanoma is one of the most com­mon forms of can­cer in the United States. Most cases are re­lated to sun Uv-in­duced dam­age to the skin. And nearly 9,500 peo­ple in the U.S. are ex­pected to die of me­lanoma in 2018.

But these five sci­en­tists are work­ing to change all that.

MRA, the largest non-profit fun­der of me­lanoma re­search, has granted these women a Team Sci­ence Award for Women in Sci­en­tific Re­search to ad­vance me­lanoma de­tec­tion and treat­ment. The three-year re­search project is pow­ered by the bril­liance of five fe­male sci­en­tists and funded by L’oréal Paris.

Since 2013, L’oréal Paris has com­mit­ted a to­tal of $1.5 mil­lion to MRA re­search.

With your help we will de­feat me­lanoma. Learn more about me­lanoma pre­ven­tion and sup­port life-sav­ing re­search by vis­it­ing it­sthat­wor­thit.org.

And make ev­ery day an SPF day — rain or shine.
