SunSmart Ankle Sock: Slip-Slop-Slap NOW!
Who doesn't love sunshine? But we are not kidding when we say Australia has the highest rate of melanoma in the world! UV exposure can damage all skin types, although there is a higher risk if you have pale skin. So send a pair to your mates to remind them to be SunSmart - remember UV levels can still be high on cool days.
The Alfred Cancer Biobank is working on better ways to prevent and treat melanoma and skin cancers.
Boob Ankle Sock: My Body, My Story
"I was inspired by my aunt, "Janet" when I was designing these socks with Andres (Founder of Sydney Sock Project). Janet had a double mastectomy in her 40s when she had breast cancer. Thankfully, she has been cured now (for more than 10 years!) but I noticed since then she has always been layering herself with thick jackets even in summer. The experience is different for everyone - and I think it is important to know that. "
Jen Cheung, The Alfred Cancer Biobank Manager.
