[Tanning] Is Just Not Worth It

Melanoma_AshleyTrenner

Straight from the experiences of a patient with melanoma.  This story is heartbreaking…it is an interesting experience to pause the video, look past the well coiffed exterior of this woman and the excellent composure of both her and her parents…and realize that she is facing terminal cancer and has only weeks to live.  She pleads with youth to stop tanning. Sharing her story is such a brave and courageous thing for her to do and so we decided to help spread her last wish…

If there is one person’s life that I can affect, then that is a beautiful gift that I could give to somebody because I don’t want them to end up like me…at all.  It’s just not worth it.
