ICPR will be offering a FREE skin screening in the month of May. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the U.S. The most common types of skin cancer are basal cell and squamous cell cancers. These cancers rarely spread to other parts of the body and are usually curable with treatment. A third type of skin cancer is called melanoma. Melanoma is less common, but more dangerous because it’s more likely to spread. A skin cancer screening can help find cancer in its earlier stages when it’s easier to treat. In lieu of monetary payment we are asking for a donation towards the Pekin Outreach Initiative Day Center. This is a newly opened homeless shelter in downtown Pekin. It offers meals and a place to shower, as well as do laundry. We ask for travel size deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo, shaving cream and other toiletries. The day center is supported strictly by donations and volunteers. More information about the day center can be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/PekinOutreachInitiative/. Please join us in supporting this wonderful cause and benefiting yourself in early detection with a skin screening! Please note – our skin screening’s will be by appointment only.
