Synopsis:   Like most inquisitive boys, 12-year old Sam wants to know about UFOs, horror movies, ghosts, and girls. Sam also has leukemia, and although the adults in his life don’t want him to dwell on it, Sam wants to know everything about his disease and death, a possibility he might face. Together with his best friend, Felix, he embarks on a “scientific investigation” with questions, observations, evidence, reflections, and lists of all the things he wants to do someday — like breaking a world record, flying in a blimp, kissing a girl for the first time, and experiencing what it’s like to be a teenager. In this poignant yet ultimately uplifting tale, Sam and his family face the immensity of an uncertain future with love, humor, and a touch of the unexpected.

MN: Tan-Free Teens Day at the Capitol 2014

Join hundreds of Minnesotans from across the state in St. Paul on Wednesday, March 5th as we educate and advocate for the Minnesota Skin Cancer Prevention Act. Indoor tanning raises the risk of melanoma and is especially dangerous to children. In fact, tanning beds are a class 1 carcinogen, just like cigarettes.

In the morning, we’ll meet at the Embassy Suites where you’ll learn:

  • Facts about melanoma
  • The connection between tanning and skin cancer
  • How to talk about the issue
  • How to advocate

In the afternoon, you’ll meet with your lawmakers at the Capitol.

Register Here!
