ENGLEWOOD — Lt. Jeremy Buckholtz, and members of Union Fire Department, is hosting a skin cancer awareness and prevention training program for community firefighters Wednesday, August 5 at 6 p.m. at Good Samaritan North Health Center, 9000 N. Main Street, Englewood.
The program is open to the public and free of charge. Executive assistant to Columbus Firefighter Union Local 67 president and stage IV melanoma cancer patient, Mark Rine, will be bringing his dynamic, shocking, and inspiring presentation to the Dayton area. Rine, and his non-profit organization, SKNLUV, travel Ohio delivering skin cancer awareness and prevention training to community firefighters.
Melanoma is the most common form of cancer among young adults. The risks increase for firefighters in the line of duty due to hazardous environmental conditions, but many firefighters are not aware of the silent dangers they face and the simple steps toward prevention. Rine delivers a compelling array of facts and critical prevention steps that are saving lives.
SKNLUV is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2014 headquartered in Mt Vernon, Ohio. Their mission is to fight skin cancer by offering ever-expanding outreach programming that raises awareness of skin cancer, early detection, and prevention.
