Practicing sports outdoors increases the risk of getting hurt – and also the risk of getting melanoma skin cancer. Due to a global health gap, black and brown people don’t know the symptoms specific to their skin, resulting in late
detection and a 25% higher mortality rate than for white people. To change this we’ve created brown high performing sport bandaids that visualize symptoms of melanoma on dark skin and detect cancer using new groundbreaking technology, promoted with a campaign. By doing this we create awareness on a huge scale while making a breaktrough in skin cancer detection.
