In 2017, Norma Camarena one of our creators was diagnosed with skin cancer, while she was undergoing cancer treatment and waiting for a surgery, she came up with the idea to her younger sister Andrea Camarena, to start a project to keep her mind busy while waiting for the surgery. So, this is how they decided to create MARIA DONATELLO a hat brand that the main message is to be aware of the adverse effects of the sun.


The incidence of skin cance has increased exponentially tha last years. The biggest risk factor for skin cancer is the exposure to the sunligth and history of sunburn. However, the daily use of sunscreen and the limitation to UV ligth exposure decrease the incidence of skin melanoma. It is also important to monitor our body, knowing that the skin cancer exist but in the most cases it can be preventive and curable.
