3 LITTLE BIRDS 4 LIFE's Fundraiser:

Kara-Melanoma

3 LITTLE BIRDS 4 LIFE's Photo

THE STORY:

:: I am currently under the guidance of my doctor for bi-yearly skin exams with frequent biopsies to make sure the melanoma hasn't returned, and to make sure new melanomas haven't developed. I was also recently treated for two Basal Cell Carcinomas in which I had to use a chemotherapy cream to kill the cancer cells.
I think the fear of melanoma returning has been one of my biggest struggles. Melanoma is such a fast spreading cancer, if not caught in time, it can be deadly. That, as well as the financial strain of the surgery and subsequent doctor appointments and skin biopsies have been a struggle. Like most people, I scoured the internet for information on my type of cancer and quickly realized how deadly this cancer can be and how naive people are about melanoma. It's amazing how many people think that it is only skin cancer, and once removed, you never have to worry again. I constantly check my many moles to see if they are changing in any way, to make sure I show the doctor and have them removed in a timely manner.
