We applaud the law-makers of Indiana who have voted 69-23 that would make it against the law for anyone 16 or under to tan in a tanning bed. We have been aware and watching the outcome of this bill as one of our clients and Melanoma Survivor Katie Donnar has testified in the senate hearings.
We unfortunately have heard many stories from our clients about their bouts with skin cancer and all of them sing the same tune. “We wished we would have been smarter about protecting our skin”. Studies have now shown that skin cancer is soaring for our younger population with a direct correlation to UV tanning beds. Hearing our clients and all of the terrible skin cancer statistics made us create an event called Safe + Sexy that brought awareness to Skin Cancer and directly benefited organizations like the American Cancer Society and Outrun The Sun. We hope to continue to bring awareness to this cause in any way we can.
We are very familiar with the feelings attached to having a tan. It can really help with ones self esteem and make people feel better instantly. This is why we are so glad we can give everyone (no age limit) an opportunity to feel tan, minus all the harmful and or negative effects.
In the coming week or so, Governor Pence should sign this bill and it will go into immediate effect.
