Be Smart: Dear 16-Year-Old Me

I have one piece of advice for you ladies… skip the tanning bed and protect your skin (there’s plenty of other ways to achieve that “perfect” tan without the sun and I will be blogging about it very soon). In light of this advice (and the fact that summer is upon us), I want to share this video with you. It left me speechless and even a little teary-eyed…

Please join me in spreading the word about melanoma awareness by sending this link/video to all the 16 year-olds you know or anyone that was ever 16 or will be 16… Send it to everyone and let’s spread the word.
