The skin cancer survivor stories of others can be just what gives you the hope, strength and peace to make decisions and overcome your battle.

In turn you can pass on your own experience with skin cancer to help others.

When you tell your own personal cancer story, you will be lifting the spirits of that someone ...somewhere in this world.

It happened to me!

I found a lot of strength and hope when I was at stage 4 squamous cell cancer, back in 1990, by reading someone’s cancer survivor story and applying it to my life.

You don't realize how important all your survivor stories are to someone.

It could be a survivor story about any type of skin cancer, at any stage from precancerous, basal cell cancer, squamous skin cancer, or any of the rare skin cancer types.


The one particular cancer survivor story I found was not even a skin cancer story, but it’s all I could find at that time.

I read about this man who told of how he was going about his alternative healing regimen (eating, lifestyle, walking), he would imagine that strong soldiers were invading his body and driving out the evil cancer cells. In the end, he won with the help of these soldiers.

I made that a part of my cancer survivor plan and it strengthens my mind.

I’ve been surviving…since 1990!

So please help someone by sharing your story!

Hi! My name is Nick and I’m 56 yrs. old and this is part of my story. Let me tell you, I was like a lot of people out there and I had no idea that skin cancer was anything bad. I had Basal cell back in 2007, but that was no big deal and it was removed and that was the end of that. No one told me that it was a type of skin cancer (I looked it up on my computer). But still no big deal, it would not kill me.
But I did know the word "Melanoma"....." --by Nick

Bottom Line
The Weather Channel has done well posting this information and photos to help you spot skin cancer, including melanoma.
It can be hard to spot, even for a professional.
The bottom line is to get an expert's opinion about any suspicious mole or lesion on your skin. If necessary, get a second opinion  and/or request a biopsy. it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Don’t put your very life at risk!
