|The mole that started it all|
I look at these photos now, almost 2 years later and I feel the pain and fear all over again. I will never stop spreading awareness about melanoma.
I have come a long way since my diagnosis and surgery and I know my journey has just begun.

Melanoma really does suck. It doesn't care if you are young, old, white, black, wealthy,or poor. It likes to sneak into organs like the brain, liver, and lungs, and can even spread to the colon.
There are many trials and many warriors participating in them in the hopes to find a cure and help others with a cure. We are hoping there will be a cure soon. I have lost too many friends to melanoma. That's not cool with me.
