It’s no surprise to me that the number of skin cancer cases are increasing. People love to lay out in the hot sun and often forget to put on their sunscreen. Plus they now tan all year long just to look bronzed. Don’t take the “It won’t happen to me attitude.” Not to long after I lost my father, my mother was diagnosed with skin cancer, the most dangerous and deadly kind, melanoma. She discovered it and has since had melanoma three times on her body. I am so grateful she is alive today but she is super careful in the sun, protected head to toe everyday. The reason for the melanoma is exposure from when she was young through her adult years and not wearing sunscreen . This is why I choose to be cautious and not reckless with my health and I encourage others to do the same.
