Excellent sun safety information This book is packed with excellent advice and practical tips for parents and families about sun safety tips. The information about sun safety in schools been really useful and has inspired my school to review its sun safety strategy. A great source of help and advice I bought this book after a relation was diagnosed with skin cancer recently. Having been slightly confused by the information that we'd been provided with from the hospital, this book was a fantastic source of information and advice. Everything is clearly explained and the short sections make it easier to read. We now all feel far more informed about the type of skin cancer we're facing, the likely treatment options and the prognosis. Thank you for such an informative and helpful guide.
