Spring Swing 2014

Where You Are:

Spring Swing®, Moffitt’s Sun Safety Tour, is a partnership between Moffitt Cancer Center and the Tampa Bay Rays, offering free skin cancer screenings at specified baseball spring training venues throughout the state of Florida.  Screeners look for early signs of skin cancer while promoting sun safety, skin cancer awareness and education with help from Moffitt's Mole Patrol® team.
