Cold Heartless Killer - Melanoma

I have shared this video many times.  "Dear 16 Year Old Me" is by far the best melanoma PSA.

A colleague of mine once watched this video and stated "except for the scars, they all look so healthy!"  It's true that melanoma is a stealth, sneaky, and silent disease to those that haven't suffered its wrath. 

Today, melanoma claimed one of the stars of this video...Meredith, the sweet, young,
 be speckled girl with ocular melanoma (in the eye).  She was 26.

Don't under estimate the seriousness of melanoma based on how healthy those who fight may appear.  Melanoma is a cold, heartless killer that can strike without warning and without mercy.

Please watch this video and share.

RIP Meredith Legg Stapleton.


  1. Wow, what a touching video. It's so scary to think that melanoma can affect anyone. I have a quick question and was wondering if you could email me when you have a free moment. Thanks! Hope to hear from you soon. :-)

  2. Heather,
    My name is Phyllis. I have Melanoma. What is your question?
