My mother has stage III melanoma. Due to my complexion (light skinned, redhaired, and freckled)and my mother's diagnosis my chances are obviously high. I was hoping someone on this site could help me find out the best sunscreens to use- for face and body. I don't know if there is some kind of site that rates sunscreens and such. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thank you

http://exlibris.colgate.edu/staff/fg/melanoma/sunprotective.htm is a good link for information about suncreens and protective clothing. I like your mother have stage III melanoma and I think you are very smart to take precautions. My daughter is a young adult and I have emphasized the importance of her protecting her skin. Best of luck to you and your mother.
