We want to help you and your family live a sun safe life!
To understand the foundation of UV Skinz, you must understand the legacy from which UV Skinz was born. You must understand Darren’s story. Darren Lee Farwell was always up for an outdoor adventure. An avid surfer and snowboarder, Darren couldn’t begin to count the number of serious sunburns he had suffered as a child. He was not aware that just one severe sunburn during a child’s first 15 years could double the chance of developing skin cancer as an adult. Darren was young and full of life and never thought about skin cancer or how deadly it could be. On September 14, 2001, at the far-too-young age of 32, Darren lost his battle. He left behind his wife and three young boys; ages one, three, and six at the time of his passing. In the years to follow, Darren’s widow, Rhonda Sparks, made it her life goal to help other families not have to go through what their family did. It was very difficult to lose a spouse, a life partner, a daddy to three beautiful little boys and it was even more difficult to think it all stemmed from over exposure to the sun. Rhonda vowed to bring awareness to this disease and help other people who innocently think ‘it’s just skin cancer’.
