Dear 16 Year Old Me…


An funny and touching video, showing Malignant Melanoma survivors speaking to their 16 year old selves, warning them about the disease, and the risks of sun exposure.
Skin cancer is very real, yet very preventable.
These people were not so lucky, but I hope the rest of us, who have the benefit of learning from these survivors, will take their advice – to avoid sun tanning, and to use sunscreen.
‘Dear 16 year old me, I wish I’d known, that one bad sunburn before you turn 18, doubles your risk of developing Melanoma.’
