Before you head out to celebrate Memorial Day, remember to pack your sunscreen. 

Dr. Kelli Web, a reconstructive surgeon at Southern Illinois Healthcare, works with skin cancer patients. She said sunblock is essential to preventing skin cancer for yourself and your family, especially children.

"Studies show it's the sun damage you have when you're ten years old that causes those changes to your skin," she said.
