I am proud to be part of the #NotJustSkinCancer campaign. It is an excellent launch for discussion of the complacency in social media about sun safety (or the lack thereof) and skin cancer. It also provides a message of hope for those already diagnosed with this silent killer.
Every day I deal with the pain and side-effects of melanoma, as well as the stigma of "Just Skin Cancer." I am happy to share my perspective on that to change the perception of this disease - It is not JUST skin cancer, it IS skin cancer. I wish to share my experience in order to prevent others from traveling the same journey my family and I are on.
Thanks to the collaboration of the PR team behind the video, as well as Save Your Skin Foundation and Melanoma Network of Canada, I was invited to share my story on Huffington Post Canada. Yes... Huff Post... I have finally stopped hyperventilating...
Please feel free to check it out and to "like" and "share" it - thank you for your support in helping to spread this message. It's #NotJustSkinCancer
