TROY (WWJ) - You may think skin cancer only happens after decades in the sun or in tanning beds, but younger people get the diagnosis, too.

Troy resident George Stager was just 22 years old in 2006 when a dermatologist discovered melanoma on his back.

“There’s a myth out there that says when you’re young, you’re not, you know, able to get something like cancer,” Stager told WWJ Health Reporter Sean Lee.

“‘I’m young; I take care of myself; I’m active.’ But, in reality, the age for melanoma is getting younger and younger,” he said.

To give back after his successful treatment, Stager is hosting the 5th annual SKIN event this Saturday, July 27, in Ferndale.

The event fill feature hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, dancing and a live fashion show.  Proceeds from the event benefit the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
