Dear 16 year old me

This seems totally appropriate for our wonderful weather. This is not meant to frighten or terrify you, but seriously people. DO NOT go outside without putting on sunscreen and under NO CIRCUMSTANCES go out tanning. Please Please Please. Watch this. This video is about people who were diagnosed or have family who died from Melanoma. We don’t think about this. Yeah, we know not to smoke. Smoking causes cancer. But who thinks about putting on sunscreen when hanging outside? Please think about it now.

You can learn more details about Melanoma here:
Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. It is the leading cause of death from skin disease.
Melanoma can appear on normal skin, or it may begin as a mole or other area that has changed in appearance. Some moles that are present at birth may develop into melanomas.
