Hi, my name is Ken.
I am a 72 year old, active, outdoorsy New Zealander.
Have had one melanoma removed, I searched the internet for long sleeved golf shirts and found the Solbari brand. I have bought two Solbari shirts for golf, the zip collared one for maximum protection and the traditional collar type for more relaxed situations. They are very comfortable to play in. A bonus besides the obvious sun protection is that they are warm on cooler days and cool on hot days; remarkable.
Pictured: in support of this last comment my photo shows me while travelling the Greek Islands in 36ºC temperatures; so great to have my Solbari shirts on holiday with me.
Thank you Ken for helping raise awareness for skin cancer, melanoma and skin conditions, and sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.
The Solbari Team
We understand that getting an appointment with a dermatologist or skin doctor can be challenging and expensive.
We decided it would be great to bring the best early skin cancer detection technology direct to the Solbari global community.
Skin Cancer rates increase 150% in UK
Cancer Research UK announced this week that skin cancer incidence rates in the UK have increased markedly.
The introduction of “lockdowns”, the restriction of movement and non-essential healthcare activities being suspended have had an impact on the diagnosis of cancer cases including skin cancer.
Countries around the World are now evaluating the unintended consequences of Covid-19 restrictions on the diagnosis of cancer. Sadly, cancer related death rates are expected to increase over the coming years due to the delay in diagnosis.
