Ashley's personal story


Hi, I'm Ashley and I am 30 years old. I was diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer on May 1st. I have had two surgeries and was told May 28th that it has all been removed. I go in tomorrow to find out exactly what stage it was and hopefully won't have to go back for any more check-ups for at least 6 months.

I was very lucky and God was on my side, because I had my spot for 12 years and was just too hard-headed to get it checked out. If it wasn't for my sister making me a doctor's appointment and making me go, I would have never found out. So please everyone know this is a serious thing. Get it checked out! Good luck and God bless everyone fighting this battle and who have fought this battle.
