SKIN CANCER TAKE A HIKE!

BENEFITING: AMERICAN ACADEMY OF DERMATOLOGY INC

ORGANIZER: Dr. Ellen

EVENT DATE: Jul 16, 2014

Tamy Ottomeyer

THE STORY:

I am a mother, sister, wife and RN, born and raised in Sydney, Australia which until recently led the world in the incidence of skin cancers and sun damaged skin. A successful national “slip-slop-slap” campaign in the 1980‘s helped alter these statistics and gave rise to my passion for the prevention of skin cancer  which has affected my family personally.

Why am I climbing Mt Kilimanjaro?

With over seven years experience in dermatologic surgery I witnessed the exceptionally harmful effects of sun and environmental exposure that result in skin cancer and premature skin aging. As an RN I help educate our patient population in ways to prevent these issues, and maximize skin health, fitness, and well-being.

The 'SKIN CANCER, TAKE A HIKE' Campaign hopes to raise $1 million for the American Academy of Dermatology [AAD] SPOT Skin Cancer campaign, which provides public awareness and critical skin cancer prevention and detection programs.
