Miami Dolphins teams up with cancer campaign

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins has teamed up with a cancer campaign to offer free skin cancer screenings.

The team joins the national campaign Melanoma Exposed which helps educate the public about skin cancer and its risk factors.

A team press release says the team and the campaign have screened nearly 700 fans for skin cancer since the campaign began in 2012. The public can join the Dolphins on Sunday at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens.

The first 100 fans to get screened will receive tickets to the Miami Dolphins home game against the Caroline Panthers on Nov. 24.
