Anyhow, back to MG. She found a new mole on her body when she reached her 30's, but still put off having it looked at for a year. When she finally did so, she discovered she had Stage 3 melanoma. Not a good thing. She's had to have it removed, along with the lymph node it invaded. She had to undergo immunotherapy which, according to her, had some nasty side effects. In her words, "it was a tough year."
Her cancer is in remission and she's a survivor. With this new lease on life, she is dedicating herself to making others aware of melanoma, and to encouraging prevention. She has some great awareness campaigns such as "SPF - Sexy Pale Female," "Respect the Rays," and "Proud to Be Pale" and she promises some fun products coming out soon for 2011! I've told her that her website is one that I hope "Black is the New Pink" will one day mirror.
Please check out her website (Google "Melanoma Girl") and help support her work. And if nothing else, just please spread the word, and spread the lotion!
