Dear 16-year-old Me

This video is the best I've seen regarding melanoma awareness and prevention, so please, PLEASE get the word out and send this video to your friends and family, or ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN. It's important for me to save lives and it should be to you too since melanoma is the #1 fastest growing cancer in the U.S.

Looking back on my 16 yr old self, I wish I wouldn't have spent so much time in the sun as a lifeguard/swim instructor-coach, because here I am fighting Stage 4 Melanoma at the age of 33...So please, again, spread the word and protect yourself and your children!!!

Wow, I watched this video twice, I was so touched by this!! It actually gave me tears, as my scars on my body are a reminder.

I am going to repost this.

I truly hope you are doing amazing, and I'm keeping you in my thoughts.
