A guy who will do a melanoma fundraising walk wearing a black tutu and nail covers will, obviously, do almost anything for a donated buck. My latest Quixotic venture was to respond (quite belatedly) to a request and offer to rewrite the lyrics to a song that is, at least in my opinion, one of the worst of the 70’s in exchange for donations to Colorado Melanoma Foundation. And I got a few pledges, thank you very much, so here goes. A song for the indoor tanning industry and its uninformed prey, to the tune of Abba’s “Dancing Queen”… You can tan, you can fry Slashing the time off your life Ooh see that girl, watch that scene Stingin' the tanning...

With tomorrow's appointment looming on the horizon, today has been a touch rough.  There is a website that I check out when need a giggle and one of the several collages containing several pictures that they frequently post is called "Don't Worry, Be Happy".  It's all inspirational type images - of course, I clicked - as today I need that today.  Badly. Here are a couple of the pictures that were shared and in a small moment in time, I felt like these were put there just for me. Original linkOriginal author: Amber...

Fall has always been my favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather, the crisp air. I love to see the clouds heavy and low in the sky. I love the feel of the balmy breeze as it carries the scent of burning leaves. And I love Halloween. But with Fall comes memories of the past few years. My dad died two years ago. Jillian’s birthday is coming up. Memories of seizures and sirens. I had dinner with my mom last night. We were talking about grief, and how grieving is different for each person. We touched on how people, even family members, deal with someone who has suffered the loss of a loved one. “They don’t know what to...

The alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m... I pop up, knowing what today is….a day of melanoma life.  I mean, everyday is that, but today I have two melanoma related appointments to jack up the anxiety of living with this diagnosis- 1) My every-9-months check up with my eye tumor specialist (the doctor who performed my Primary Acquired Melanosis surgery) and 2) My full-body skin check with my dermatologist.  On a day like this, my brain and body go like this…Jump out of bed.  Stomach hurts. I tell myself to just focus on what it is I am doing in THIS moment…brushing teeth…I am brushing my teeth.  Brushing.  Brushing.  Still brushing.  That works for a fraction of a second, and then I...

It’s Labor Day.  Summer is unofficially over.  If you or your kids aren’t back in school already, they’ll more than likely start very soon.  It’s time to put away the beach towel, the boogie boards and the sunscreen, right?Wrong!  Okay…the beach towel and boogie board can get stowed away, but that sunscreen needs to remain in your medicine cabinet or bathroom counter!  Even though the hot summer sun won’t be shining so high in the sky, it still emits those UV rays that damage your skin.Many people associate heat with sun exposure.  If it’s not hot, the sun can’t be causing any harm…right?  The truth is sun exposure can be damaging even in the cold winter months.  While UVB rays, which...

This last week the melanoma community lost more of our warriors to the ugly disease that TOO many people call "just skin cancer." Tears flowed down my face and I went to work with red-red eyes.... When asked how I felt, I simply said...fine.I did not feel fine. I felt heart broken, guilty, and ANGRY.  I felt heart broken for the young people who have lost their lives, fighting until the last breath.... Jillian, Adrienne, Michaela,  Elisa, Addison, Brianna, Tina, and SO MANY MORE!!!  TOO MANY YOUNG WOMAN!! Too many joing the ranks of angels.Their families now live without them.  I wondered why did I survive a death sentence of stage IV metastatic melanoma?  How on earth did I survive 5...
