Skin Cancer

Today I watched a video clip titled Dear 16-year-old Me.

I so wish you all, to watch it and share it with others.
My dear Father in Law had a skin cancer cut out of his back.
He worked outside as a railway ganger inspecting bridges etc and he often in the summer went shirtless, only to pay the price later.
He died of cancer from it getting into his back bone and raiding the rest of his internal organs.

My dear Harry has just been through having a large lesion removed from his back that proved to be a superficial basal cell carcinoma. This is a slow growing skin cancer. It is not melanomas. We have been told it was completely removed and healed well.
