It’s that time of year again, when you pull out the bathing suits and replenish your sunscreen supply. It’s scary to think that one severe sunburn when your child is young can double their chance of developing skin cancer as an adult.
Last year, I received the ‘Olivia’ UV Skinz swim shirts for my girls. Not only are they stylish, they block out 98% of the sun’s damaging rays! My girls loved wearing the shirts – and I was thrilled not to have to keep applying sunblock.
The UV Skinz founder, Rhonda Sparks – has three young children herself. Tragically, Rhonda lost her 32-year-old husband to skin cancer. The mission of UV Skinz has been to protect others from the sun. They produce stylish swim shirts and accessories for men, women and children that provide 50+ spf.

Mom-of-two Marcia Cross recently talked about how the family is coping as her husband Tom Mahoney undergoes treatment for an undisclosed type of cancer.
Though Tom’s treatments often require him to be at the hospital, Marcia revealed on The Bonnie Hunt Show that she makes sure he isn’t missing out on any of their 2-year-old twins Eden and Savannah’s special moments and milestones. Even potty training!
“Tom was getting treatment in hospital, and let’s just say we took pictures of what went in the potty to show daddy,” Marcia says. “He’s a very proud papa!”
The 47-year-old Desperate Housewives star admits that she was “apprehensive” to take the girls to see their dad at the hospital, but says that in the end the visit was just what the doctor ordered.
“I was sort of apprehensive, but we just wanted to make it really normal. We didn’t tell them where they were going in case we had to change plans, but they came in and they were so happy to see him. They just wanted to explore everything.
It was great. It’s the best medicine. They don’t know what a hospital is, they don’t care. It’s just, ‘There’s dad!’ ”
Marcia is seen here warming up for last weekend’s 16th Annual Revlon Run/Walk For Women in LA, which raises money for the fight against ovarian and breast cancers.
Catch me if you can! Hugh Jackman went jogging with his trainer on Wednesday morning before picking up his daughter Ava, who turns 4 in July, and meeting up with his wife Deborra-Lee. Ava rode her scooter in a pretty pink dress while Hugh kept up with his playful daughter. The trio met up with one of Ava’s little friends along the way. Hugh and Deborra-Lee are also parents to 9-year-old son, Oscar.
The 40-year-old Wolverine star says his family keeps him grounded: “My wife Deb, and kids Oscar and Ava, keep me grounded. When I won the Sexiest Man Alive award, Oscar said, ‘What, you?’ Deb’s amazing, nothing fazes her. She doesn’t have an ounce of jealousy and there’s no competition between us. I’ve always been romantic – I love Deb more every day.”
