Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, affecting two out of three Australians before the age of 70. With more people heading outdoors during the summer months, especially in the lead up to Christmas, sun protection is a must. The Ugly Xmas Rashie has captured the nation's attention from day one and continues to grow in effectiveness, creating awareness, behaviour change and most importantly, research funding for Cancer Council Queensland - with over a quarter of a million dollars already raised for cancer research and support services.
With the help of funds and awareness generated by the Ugly Xmas Rashie, Cancer Council Queensland is leading the charge in world-class skin cancer research to help save lives. Cancer Council Queensland’s Professor Joanne Aitken has been researching skin cancer for around 25 years, with rates now starting to plateau and decline in people aged under 60.
We've teamed up with wearable UV indicator sticker company- Suncayr and Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to look at the sun protection habits of our big Ugly Xmas Rashie family. If you’ve got the sun smarts, take part. Just remember to click 'yes' at checkout.
In return, we'll send you a sample pack of Suncayr SPOTMYUV™ UV indicating spots that mimic skin to tell you when to reapply sunscreen, plus our online survey. Upon successful completion, you'll go into the draw to win four of our Ugly Xmas Rashies from next year's limited-edition design.
Open to participants over 18 years of age. Please note that this study has been approved by the Queensland University of Technology’s Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 1800000851).
