Another 6 month CT scan! The scary thing about cancer is it can be in your body and you won’t even know it. The way I found out is I was out hiking with my dog, I felt short of breath. Went to the doctor and he sent me for an x Ray, within 10 minutes of my x Ray I got a phone call saying you need to go to emergency at the hospital. That’s where this whole journey began. In a way hiking saved my life, if I wasn’t pushing myself physically I may have never found out until it may have been to late. I’m sharing this to bring awareness to the importance of being physically active. The importance of reducing your alcohol intake, the importance of reducing stress in your life. The importance of quitting smoking. Some of my friends have said to me they are not afraid of death well you don’t want to be where I am. Even though I am cancer free there is still a chance of it reoccurring and that thought is all ways in the back of my mind. I hope to inspire you to make a change in your own life?? Have a wicked day and get outside for some exercise, I want to inspire you to do things you enjoy daily!!!! #melanomaawareness #melanomasurvivor #cancersurvivor #stage4cancerthriver @saveyourskinfdn @melanomanetwork

#WorldCancerDay #WeCanICan educate Canadians on artificial tanning devices which emit 15x the amount of UV rays as from sun exposure. One tanning bed session can increase your chances of developing skin cancer. UV exposure also damages your skin and causes early wrinkling and photo aging. Tanning beds are damaging yet we still see them in health clubs across the country. #banthetan
Love your natural skin tone. There is no such thing as a healthy tan.

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer but it is one of the most preventable with early detection. Ask your doctor to check your skin at your next physical and check your skin monthly for suspicous or changing moles. #WorldCancerDay #WeCanICan #melanoma #melanomaawareness
