The Community Cancer Center in Normal holds free skin cancer screenings at least once a year.
And tonight's event was a packed house.
Although it isn't a complete scan, the spot check is with a real doctor who gives referrals.
Nurses say the screenings have led to a spike in awareness and even saved lives because through early cancer detection.
"If someone's had a mole that has changed recently or a new growth on their skin that they're concerned about, it provides an opportunity for them to come in and have a doctors take a look at it," says nurse Becky Powell.
