SBM Presidential Twitter Chat with Donna Regen

After using tanning beds throughout her high school and college years, Jaime was diagnosed with melanoma at age 20. She fought a nine-year battle with melanoma until it claimed her life at 29 years old. After Jaime’s death, her mother Donna Helm Regen, launched a campaign against the indoor tanning industry. She shared her story and championed tanning bed legislation in front of lawmakers and millions of people on social media. Donna, deemed “the indoor tanning industry's worst nightmare,” was instrumental in pushing Texas to become one of the first states to pass legislation banning minors from tanning beds. Now more than 15 states have passed similar legislation.
