I will never forget the words on the other end of the line…’I have good news – you have melanoma, but we caught it early.’
Time stood still. Did she say good news? How is this good news?
The more educated I became; the more I wanted to educate others.

But as simple as it sounds, I discovered that people have so many misconceptions about melanoma.
