Free Skin Cancer Screening

Magruder Hospital will hold a Free Skin Cancer Screening by appointment on Friday, May 9, starting at 9 a.m. Appointments can be made by calling 419-732-4061 and participants should enter through the Outpatient Entrance toward the back of the building.   Michelle Bodie, PA-C, from Dermatology Partners will be providing the screening. 

Skin cancer is the most common of all cancer types. More than 3.5 million skin cancers are diagnosed each year in the United States. That's more than all other cancers combined. The number of skin cancer cases has been going up over the past few decades. The good news is that you can do a lot to protect yourself and your family from skin cancer, or to catch it early enough so that it can be treated effectively

Spots on the skin that change in size, shape, or color should be seen by a doctor right away. Any unusual sore, lump, blemish, marking, or change in the way an area of the skin looks or feels should also be checked by a doctor.

Emily’s grandma, Terrie Theibert, took her to The Moxie Salon on Perkins Ave. to have the owner, Amanda Stavaskie, cut her hair to donate.
