My friend Abby has a big scar on her leg now, but at least that is all she has. Earlier this year, her vanity caused her to get a spot on her chest checked out, but they also checked out a darker mole on her leg, which turned out to be a melonoma. She tells her story in “Lessons From Melanoma”.
A big part of this story resonates with me because I, too, am a pale, freckled beauty that slathers on the sunscreen. Thankfully, I have a doctor that keeps tabs on any of my moles that look suspicious, and I try to be as diligent as I can in keeping an eye on them between visits. Abby’s story makes me check them more, that’s for sure.
Have any of you guys had a melonoma scare? Do you check your own moles? If not, this month is a great time to get started.
