Blog Note: Still Blonde after all these YEARS is guest posting while Keenly Kristin is addressing a few health-related issues.
RePin To Stop Melanoma and Skin Cancer!
Keenly Kristin is a great bloggy friend of mine. Recently she had a “questionable mole” and she told me about it several weeks before she was able to get it examined. I supported, cajoled, and prayed very hard for my friend, while we waited for the results. In the end, it turned out to be only a scare.
But I am hoping that it’s a warning that keeps Kristin out of the tanning beds that she occasionally admits to enjoying. As a reminder for Kristin to cut down on tanning indoors or out, and to support Skin Cancer Awareness Month, I have prepared the following Pins.
Feel free to re-pin these pins to Pinterest, a social bookmarking site frequented most often by women, to help them become more aware of Melanoma and Skin Cancer as we approach the summer months.
Editor’s Note: I (as in Kristin of Keenly Kristin) have spent decades tanning, both in the sun (mainly on the beach or poolside) and in tanning salons (I know, I know). I have suffered through numerous burns of, some slight, some moderate, and some severe (to the point of blistering and illness).
All that exposure to UV rays has caused significant skin damage, like skin aging as well as numerous freckling and spotting all over my body, from my face all the way down to my feet. I do check my skin for suspicious moles regularly, as well as see a dermatologist…and the possibility of developing skin cancer is quite scary to think about.
Skin Cancer awareness is so important — definitely more important than that desirable “glow” that comes from bronzed skin.
