    I came across your website after watching “Dear 16 year old me” and was very moved by your families story.

    I sent the video to all of my children. I had Stage I melanoma on my collarbone 11 years ago and just recently diagnosed with Metastatic Melamona that has spread to lungs,brain..unknown primary.

    So yes, it can come back and that’s another message that’s very important. I tend to think a lot of people, after having survived Stage I can get a little too lapse in going for check-ups, etc.

    Thanks again for the message…God bless!

    Great article, Danielle! I only went on a handful of warm weather vacations growing up, but I definitely had my share of bad burns. Even the ski vacations resulted in darker skin that some of my friends had from heading south. I think what has been the worst for me however, was just being outside all summer long as a camp counselor. I am now regretful of all the times I didn’t use sunscreen.
