Your Story Series: Meet Ken

Solbari blog: Your Story Series: Meet Ken

What is your name? 

Hi, my name is Ken.

Describe yourself.

I am a 72 year old, active, outdoorsy New Zealander.

What is your story?

Have had one melanoma removed, I searched the internet for long sleeved golf shirts and found the Solbari brand. I have bought two Solbari shirts for golf, the zip collared one for maximum protection and the traditional collar type for more relaxed situations. They are very comfortable to play in. A bonus besides the obvious sun protection is that they are warm on cooler days and cool on hot days; remarkable.

Pictured: in support of this last comment my photo shows me while travelling the Greek Islands in 36ºC temperatures; so great to have my Solbari shirts on holiday with me.

Thank you Ken for helping raise awareness for skin cancer, melanoma and skin conditions, and sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.
