Glad that you are interested to hear my story! I was at my yearly checkup. They took a mole off of my thigh. I got the results a week before my husband was coming home from a 15 month tour. I was devastated to hear the results as anyone would be. Luckily we got it early enough that I did not need to have chemo. Since then, I had 38 moles removed in a year, 2 melanoma, 2 benign and 34 a-typical (precancerous). I am now at the point I go to the dermatologist every 3 months instead of every 2 weeks. Trust me, I wish I could turn back time to when I was younger and listen to my mom about wearing sunscreen and not baby oil. I also wish that I never stepped foot into a tanning bed. You know I have a friend who told me that you can not get skin cancer from the tanning bed. Talk about naive…. and she continues to look like an OOMPA LOOMPA. Best of luck with your 5K!! It means a lot to me that you are doing this!
Take care, Missy
