November 2009, Michele had a brush with skin cancer when his wife Paola was diagnosed with melanoma.

Thankfully, the disease was caught early enough to treat but Michele was well aware that it might have had a very different outcome had the melanoma not been found in the beginning stages.

Based on that scary experience, Michele determined to create something simple, personal and portable, that would help people proactively monitor their own skin health. The result was the Skin Prevention app.
