As I mentioned a few months back, I had a glancing blow from the melanoma monster not long ago. So far, it looks like I'm among the lucky ones who get to walk away with some spectacular scars. Others aren't so lucky.
Know the risk factors and the ABCDs of detection. While fair-skinned, light-haired, blue-eyed folks like me are most likely to get skin cancer, no one is safe--it's an equal opportunity killer. Visit Carver's blog for a lot of good links (plus some beautiful photos of flowers from her garden).
Please be careful out there, wear sunscreen, and don't be shy about insisting that your skin concerns be taken seriously. It could very literally mean your life.
