DFD Digital BillboardIn 2008, in an effort to educate the public, and reduce the incidence of skin cancer, the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention (NCSCP) – along with its partnering organizations – designated the Friday before Memorial Day as "Don't Fry Day." The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention urges the public to understand the risks of too much UV exposure, and encourages them to protect themselves from the sun and reduce their risk of cancer.

For more information on how to protect yourself from skin cancer, visit the National Council's site at The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention is the united voice of more than 40 organizations, associations and agencies dedicated to reducing skin cancer morbidity and mortality in the United States. Council members represent some of the nation's premiere physicians, researchers, clinicians and advocates for melanoma and skin cancer prevention.

Children's Melanoma Prevention Foundation won the 2017 (NCSCP) Don’t Fry Day contest for having reached over 1 million people in 2017 with this billboard and has obtained a state proclamation and/or resolution for Don’t Fry Day in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.
