Ravens Coach Cam Cameron speaks out against skin cancer

Baltimore Ravens Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron was a young coach at the University of Michigan when his then head coach Bo Schembechler noticed a spot on his back.

The spot turned out to be a malignant mole and Cameron was diagnosed with stage 2 melanoma. Melanoma is the most lethal form of skin cancer.

Cameron was treated and survived and is now speaking out about skin cancer.

He will be featured in a 30-second public service announcement for the Joanna M. Nicolay Melanoma Foundation, a national nonprofit headquartered in Maryland that promoted melanoma research and prevention.

Cameron will be promoting the importance of skin cancer for Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection & Pevention Month, which is in May.

Find a link to the public service announcement here.
