Indoor tanning is a dangerous habit. Lisa Pace, a women’s college basketball coach and former habitual indoor tanner, wishes she realized that before developing more than 80 skin cancers.

Pace uses this 30-second video to highlight her story. She is not alone in having her life threatened by the consequences of indoor tanning. Consider:
