In 2006, it was estimated 68,780 new cases of melanoma and other forms of skin cancer would be reported.

Donations made to organizations like the American Cancer Society help fund research for detection, treatment and prevention of all forms of cancer. They also provide support services to cancer victims and their families.

This letterbox is planted in honor of all who have been diagnosed with skin cancer, and those who love them.

Your quest begins at the Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services Doctors Park West. Look for the office of Dr. DeLost. Park in front of the building and walk around to the north side. Next to the building you will see a large rock sitting on a bed of pebbles or pea gravel. Look under that rock, and buried in the pebbles.

This is a very public place, so be as unobtrusive as possible in retrieving and replacing the box. Please use black ink if possible as that color denotes skin cancer.
