What I wish I knew when I was 16 years old!

Please click the link below and watch this video, Dear 16-Year-Old-Me; POWERFUL!!! 
Sharing this short video will SAVE LIVES!  

Fortunately, my life was spared as a result of detecting my Melanoma BEFORE it spread to other parts of my body, which could have been FATAL.  

Below are some pictures of my Melanoma, aka "Ugly Freckle" BEFORE and AFTER excision. 

This is serious business folks!

  1. Karen,
    Sharing your before and after photos are very effective! Who would think that a small (yet ugly) freckle would result in such a large scar. And yours was caught early! This should open some eyes to those that think "it can just be cut out."

    And I couldn't agree more...the "Dear 16-Year=Old Me" is very powerful indeed. Thanks for posting!

  2. Thanks, Al, for your support! Hey, I haven't been receiving notifications of your blog posts...I need to find out what's up with that! :-) It's nice to be connected! Best Wishes to YOU, Karen
