Monday is national Melanoma day.

The American Academy of Dermatology says this designation is a good way to raise awareness of the disease.

In fact, the entire month of May is designated to it.

Melanoma is one of the most fatal forms of skin cancer.

As the summer approaches, the medical community reminds people to be cautious with sun safety and tanning in general.

People are asked to wear orange on Monday in honor of national Melanoma day.
