    So glad you share your story. As someone who has had more than a few handfuls of biopsies done I completely relate to the blood boiling when people share those graphics. it's not lavish having these scars everywhere or getting a bad diagnosis. I can't imagine being 20 and having that diagnosis, it's scary but I'm so glad you beat it and you share your story! I tell everyone to get checked because it's honestly not bad and it can save your life! SPF for life.

    I have my first dermatologist appointment coming up and a large reason I'm getting my skin checked is because of you! It's so important to wear sunscreen and to take care of our skin. I really regret that I didn't take skin care seriously as a teenager. I wish I could go back and slather on sunscreen. Thanks for sharing your experience even though it takes a lot of vulnerability as dramatic as it sounds you really are making an impact (possibly even saving lives!)

    You are so inspiring. I seriously started taking really good care of my skin in the sun because of you. You're so strong and incredible. I hope your annual check up goes well and you don't have to get any biopsies done. I can't imagine how scary it is waiting for the results. Always here to support and love you!

    I hate that you had to go through that, but I'm so so so glad that you take time out to remind others to be safe. I'm ultra paranoid about getting cancer (of any kind) and it's just something that should at least cross people's minds during the warmer months. xoSamiThe Classic Brunette

    Ah yes avoid the tanning bed! I am naturally tan but I still take the precaution to use sun protection every single day. Thank you for sharing your story love.

    It's so crazy that I used to be TAN OBSESSED! I would go daily to the tanning bed. What? Now I'm all about sunless tanner and won't go out in the sun without my SPF. I'm glad that things are changing and girls have other options and are more educated on the harmful effects of the sun.xx,Laceywww.theglittergospelblog.com
