Today is the first day of Skin Cancer/Melanoma Awareness month.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More case of skin cancer are diagnose yearly than all breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer combined. It is so important to know the signs of skin cancer and how to stay safe in the sun.

I am a stage 3 Melanoma cancer survivor. I live each day praying that the cancer is gone for good. I have a chest xray every 4 months and CT/MRI/PET scans for anything suspicious. I see my oncologist and dermatologist every 4 months. Believe me skin cancer can happen to anyone.

Here are some links to information about skin cancer.
