Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with stage 1a melanoma in Oct of 2011 and since then have helped to spot it on multiple customers at the barber shop I work at as well as advocate in every aspect of my life . I have turned my personal facebook page into a melanoma awareness and education page which concentrates on sharing real and raw melanoma stories. I have also taken a particular interest in pediatric melanoma because despite the constant increase in numbers ,most are unaware that children get melanoma , and most stories are initially mis diagnosed often leading to a higher stage ...I have also transformed my car into a mobile melanoma mobile named Hope honoring both Warriors and Angels ,as well as facts
