May is Skin Cancer/Melanoma Awareness Month

Hi friends! On this beautiful day I wanted to kick off the month of May, which happens to be Skin Cancer/Melanoma Awareness Month with some informational reminders! As many of you who listen to our show and read my blog know, I was diagnosed with Melanoma in August of 2011. It was by the far scariest thing i've ever faced and continues to be a part of my life every day moving forward.

The main thing I want to preach is to know your body! Know what the moles on your  body look like. Count them. Make a mental note of what they look like. If something new appears or something old changes - show your doctor. YOU are your first line of defense!

If you're interested in reading more about my experience with Melanoma, a beauty blog that I review products on did a Q&A with me for Skin Cancer/Melanoma Awareness Month. You can read it here! XO

This is the BEST visual explanation of the ABCDE's of Melanoma i've found. Mine was E - Evolving.
