I am a person with a lot of moles. Having grown up around the Equator during the 1970’s and 1980’s I have always been sun-conscious and certainly conscious about my skin. After my first wife – Mitsy – passed away in March 2015 from Melanoma Cancer, this indiscriminate disease continues to ravage the world.
With Mitsy giving birth to our two children I share the responsibility of raising them with my beautiful Fiancee, Gretchen, and the ‘possibility’ of one or both of them contracting Melanoma….or may be not, fills me with dread after my experience with Mitsy. I am not sure I want to do the DNA test and then I would “know” what the outcome will be.
I set up a non-profit to celebrate the legacy of my first wife and to grow awareness of Melanoma (Mitsy’s Wings) so the point of this post/blog is that you MUST have a regular skin check with a dermatologist. It is imperative. The health & wellness of your skin is just as important as the internal medicine checks you have too.
