Philphest offers free skin cancer screenings, music and more!

Oldsmar, Florida -- On Saturday, April 6, a young man will be remembered during a free skin cancer screening. His family has organized the 7th annual Philphest, Benefit by the Bay.

Philip Bryant died in 2006 from complications of melanoma. He was athletic, a football player and healthy until he was diagnosed at the age of 22 .

His family tells us he had a mole that no one really noticed was becoming irregular and growing. When he finally got it checked out, it was too late.

His family set up a foundation in the Philip's name.

On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., the foundation and volunteers will hold free skin cancer screenings all day at R.E. Olds Park. That's on Shore Drive West in Oldsmar.

There will also be live music, a water ski show and other activities throughout the day.
