One Black Ribbon at a Time

Melanoma is the second-most-common cause of cancer among young people…

…and one person loses their life to the disease every hour. It is this harsh reality that was the inspiration for RayWear and its mission of protection. The black cancer ribbon symbolizes melanoma awareness, and we send one out with each order to share the gift of awareness. We hope that by shedding light on this cause, we’ll encourage people to take action to protect themselves and others.
