If not less, at least 10,000 cases of melanoma cancer are being registered in Australia. In order to bring a decline in the number of cancer cases as well as to raise awareness among people, the Sunsense UV Photo Bus is going to be launched in Sydney today.
The bus will roam across the country and will provide free screening sessions to people. While revealing further information on the same, officials were of the view that the bus will tour 21 major cities of the country till December 5.
The period of touring has been kept long, so that maximum number of people is able to get screened. Studies have found that if things are not improved from now onwards then two in three Australians face the risk of being diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they get 70 years old.
Carrie Bickmore, a known television presenter, has been chosen as the event ambassador. "The average [UV rating] is 60 or 66 [100 being best and 0 being worst]. I was 42 ... which means I have a lot of sun damage", shared Bickmore.
It is expected that more number of people are being able to get their skin tested and the aim of event is being fulfilled.
