(KPRC) - Every hour, someone in the United States dies from melanoma.

Despite efforts to raise awareness about sun protection, it remains the fastest growing cancer.

But, a new high-tech tool is helping doctors catch it before it grows deadly.

Donna Martin of Pearland was a life-long sun worshiper, until she was diagnosed with melanoma.

"It's a rude awakening and it really makes you think about getting exams of a regular basis," she says.

Now she tells others to do the same, especially if they have a history of skin cancer.
