What type of insurance coverage do you need?

 

While basking in the sun is relaxing and fun (especially after an extended winter season this year), it can also be dangerous to your health. Skin cancer is common and quite dangerous. It is the most common form of cancer in the United States and over two million people are diagnosed annually. Even more startling, sun exposure is the primary cause of over 90% of non-melanoma skin cancer case reports in the United States.
