It's become impossible for me to not raise awareness for this preventible cancer. It's alarming that someone is diagnosed every 8 minutes and dies every 57 minutes from melanoma. My family has been batteling melanoma since 3-2012. My dad lost his life and my daughter is fighting for her life with mets to her lungs and brain. It's so important to protect your skin in the sun. To avoid tanning booths and tanning outside as the tan is in fact DNA damage that turns into melanoma at a later time. I used to think I was invensible and until I was diagnosed with stage zero in August 2014. I've worked in the veterinary field for over 30 years and will be raising awareness for animals and people. I am starting with my own community first, then going national. Dear Melanoma will be supporting research at UCSD Moore's Cancer Center and San Diego Animal Dermatology. Funds will be donated to Lions, Tigers and Bears and several parks and schools for shade structures. Are you interested in joining our efforts? I am currently setting up the board and would love for you to join us!! Have questions? I can be reached at FondaUpp@gmail.com or 619-993-1042.
Mom on a mission!!
