Black, white, Latino or Asian, skin cancer only cares that you have skin, not what color it is. Skin cancer does not discriminate. Did you know Bob Marley lost his battle to skin cancer?
I had just turned 18 when I was diagnosed with Melanoma, which is one of the hardest types of skin cancer to treat. Melanoma poses a risk of moving quickly through the skin and into the blood.
What has saved my life time and time again is knowledge.
That’s why I feel so strongly about sharing this with you today. I want you to feel protected with your knowledge and use that to battle Skin cancer and other threats to your health.
You only get one life and one body. Be kind to it. Wear sunscreen. See a dermatologist every year. Take care.
