THE STORY:

NEBRASKA CANCER COALITION wrote -

The Bed is Dead campaign focuses on educating Nebraska girls ages 18 and under, and their parents, on the dangers of indoor tanning. Community organizations, student groups and the Nebraska Cancer Coalition (NC2) are working together to spread the message with the goal of changing the behavior of young women who tan indoors.

Unfortunately, this important educational campaign is facing a serious challenge. In July 2015, a group of Nebraska tanning salon owners, with the backing of the American Suntanning Association, filed a lawsuit against the Nebraska Cancer Coalition and two of our officers.

As the information on the site is supported by well-accepted research and epidemiologic literature, with appropriate references, we will continue to strongly defend the actions and statements made. But we need your support! Whether you are involved in cancer control, a partner of NC2, a parent or otherwise, we would appreciate any donation you can make to help us defend against this lawsuit and fight for this campaign.

To learn more about The Bed Is Dead and the campaign's programs and activities, please visit www.thebedisdead.org.

In the event that our board of directors determines that your donated funds are no longer needed for purposes of supporting us in the current legal action, we may utilize such funds for our general operations in support of our mission.
