Beauty Byte: Marcia Promotes Skin Cancer Screening

Skin cancer is very prevalent in our society today, so be sure to take advantage of the free skin cancer screening program next month, called Skin Cancer Takes Friends.

According to reports, Olay and the American Society for Dermatological Surgery have teamed up with Desperate Housewife, Marcia Cross, to spread awareness of the program, which is meant to encourage people to bring their friends to dermatologic surgeons for a free screening. Look out for Marcia, who will appear in a national print campaign in Shape Magazine and in in-store visuals.

"I'm proud to be part of a cause that is near and dear to my heart," said actress Marcia Cross. "Having had two family members suffer from melanoma, I've come to understand the importance of skin cancer detection and prevention."

My father died of melanoma that spread to his brain. I love Marcia, she's gorgeous, and she was my inspiration in accepting my ultra pale skin.

And also don't get burnt out in the sun, I used to do that plus go to the tanning beds all spring to get nice and dark for summer. I had melanoma removed a year and a half ago.
