Like many people now of days – I can say I am a skin cancer survivor. While I didnt know it at the time, as I worked very hard for my beautiful tan as a child/teenager I was working equally as hard on my skin cancer. After finding out that most skin cancer is preventable, I looked for away to better protect my own three children and myself. And when I discovered sun protective swimwear, I was so relieved, but I couldnt find a product on the market that my children would feel comfortable in wearing and that is how MaxOUT UV Swimwear got started. Because of what I did to myself – I am very passionate about raising the awareness on the importance of proper skin care as a way of life.
