Date:2/19/2009

DANVILLE, Calif., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 5, 2009, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center will offer a free skin cancer screening at its Summit Campus, located at 3100 Summit Street, Oakland, CA, 94609. This community cancer screening is supported by a grant from Lazarex Cancer Foundation, a San Francisco Bay Area non-profit dedicated to changing the face of cancer.

With more than one million new cases of skin cancer being diagnosed each year, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. In 2009 alone, estimates are that more than 62,000 people will be diagnosed with melanoma, the most serious skin cancer, and about 8,500 will die from it.

"People can learn the early warnings signs and then check themselves and follow up on any unusual changes," says Leslie Paine, manager, Markstein Cancer Education and Prevention Services, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center.

"Working with Markstein Cancer Services to bring this critical screening to the community, we are getting closer to our goal of changing the face of cancer by stopping cancer before it even starts," says Lazarex Cancer Foundation President Dana Dornsife.

Individuals wishing to participate in the skin cancer screening must make an appointment by contacting the Markstein Cancer Education and Prevention Services of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center at 510.869.8833.
