Dear sixteen-year-old-me.

Home Stager with Transition Stage LLC


This is a very effective and compelling video on a topic we all need to be aware of. Watch it all the way through, and be sure to pass it on to everyone you love.

It's a tough thing, but we can help protect ourselves and everyone we know and love by being more aware and vigilant about this type of cancer.

Thanks to Alan May for for the original post.

Susan Mangigian posted this on her facebook page, and I thought it was worthy of posting on my Blog.  Watch it all the way through, it's worthwhile, and when you're done, pass it along to the people you care about.


And when you're done, forward it back (or backward it forward?) to your sixteen-year-old-self.  If you figure out how, please let me know.  And if you're sixteen-year-old-self actually listens to you, let me know how you managed it.

We were so invincible, once.  Weren't we?

Thanks Susan.  You rock!  Who knows how many this might impact?

This was pretty tough to watch.  A good friend of our just passed away from this very thing.  His was noticed as a black spot on the back of his ear, had been neglected because he could not see advice is when you put on sunscreen, put it all over your ears as well, front, back and around the hairline.  Especially for those who have short hair and the ears show.  My step-father had this type of cancer as well and they had to peel half of his face to get it all.  He was a farmer and had many places on his arms and face over the years that had to be cut way.  Farmers tan you know.  No sunscreen back then, how were we to know, but now we do.  Thank for this re-post.  Appreciated and I am forwarding it on.  Just put on Facebook.

Hi Mary - It's really true that anyone who works outdoors needs a good sunscreen, re-applied multiple times. I'm so sorry that you lost a good friend to this cancer, and that your stepfather was so baly affected. I'm glad you're forwarding it on.

Hi Judy~ I saw this on Alan's blog and I didn't really know what it was about, so I didn't watch it.  Thank you for re-blogging.  I've posted the video on my Facebook page.
