UV Couture is very proud and excited to announce their new partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society.

UV Couture will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their beautiful Pippa Sun Shirts towards skin cancer prevention, awareness, research and support and is looking forward to being mutually involved in other events.

UV Couture is extremely honoured to be involved with such a prestigious organization and hopes that, together with the Canadian Cancer Society, we can help raise awareness about skin cancer – one of the few cancers in Canada still on the rise and one that is completely preventable by your choices.

My father was diagnosed with Melanoma a few years ago, and having experienced first hand the worry and fear that he & our entire family had to go through waiting for test results to come back, and not knowing what the turn out would be- not to mention the numerous scars and lesions that have been left on his body. I knew this was not something I would ever want to go through, and knew I had to change my sun tanning behaviours.

Ultimately, the decision is yours, but I hope you make the right choice for yourself and your family.
