It’s never too early to learn about skin cancer.

That’s what Ahwatukee Skin & Laser manager Sarah Neumann believes, noting that most skin damage that leads to cancer occurs before age 18.

So her employees reach out to young people, especially teens who play soccer, baseball and football, since they can spend hours in the sun.

Neumann says she has donated gallons of sunscreen annually to such teams. In addition, some of her staffers ride around in a decked-out jeep and teach young people the proper use of sunblock.

“We are on a mission, a mission to spread proper skincare education and early detection of skin cancer,” Neumann said.

Bethany Cheatham, one of her staffers, has devoted her free time to educating local middle schoolers on the importance of protection from sun exposure, the dangers of tanning beds, and proper skin hygiene as well as acne prevention.

“We love our patients and our community and we try and do everything in our power to give back locally," she said.

“We sponsor skin cancer screenings, focusing on veterans and members of the Armed Forces,” she continued. “We donate time as sponsors of For the Dogs, an awareness campaign targeting responsible pet ownership and adoption.”

But Neumann’s main mission is to help Ahwatukee teens develop good habits that will protect their skin in later life.

“We try and do all that I can to help educate kids about the importance of proper sun protection early on,” she said.
