Justin Thomas has a story to tell for Melanoma Awareness Month
Melanoma Awareness Month is May
Enjoy those sunny days knowing you're protected from the sun with the latest UV protective apparel and accessories.
After a personal skin cancer scare, professional golfer, Justin Thomas, launched his high-performance, affordable suncare line, WearSPF, for Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month.
Not your traditional brand collaboration, the development of WearSPF is deeply personal to Justin. "My scare with melanoma was a real wake-up call for me and why I decided to partner with veteran consumer goods managers to launch WearSPF," said Justin Thomas. WearSPF is a message on a bottle creating a call to action to wear sunscreen. Justin is on a mission to educate and encourage people of all ages to "apply, re-apply and go get checked".
For Justin, a Game Changer
As a professional golfer, Justin has always relished the hard work that comes along with his career. The practice, the tournaments, all of which have resulted in some amazing experiences- PGA Tour victories, the FedExCup Championship, and being a part of Team USA via the Olympics, the President's Cup, and the Ryder Cup. But these experiences have something in common besides being a source of pride - they all took place out in the sun.
In 2019, Justin's dermatologist discovered a mole on his calf that turned out to be a melanoma. Fortunately, his melanoma was discovered early and was able to be surgically removed. It left him with a scar and a close call with a very serious disease. He is setting out to help change people's awareness about prevention and ensure that they change their behavior and WearSPF.
"As a young athlete, I wish I had known to wear sunscreen all the time. I was lucky, we caught it early. Now I WearSPF AND ReapplySPF every 2 hrs. Y'all know I love competing but NONE of us can compete with the Sun. It's the Sun!"
