This bulletin board is all too familiar to me....I just lost my brother January 30,2010 after he fought Melanoma for almost 8 years. I found this bulletin board years ago and after my brother passed and I posted the news I did not return to the bulletin board because for many reasons related to grief and coping.I miss my brohter desperately and I was with him until after his last breath, I told him I would continue fighting Melanoma in his name and that I would tell people how amazing he was.....this is my Mission in life until the day I die I will fight Melanoma.
Now I need your help. I am putting together a presentation so that I can talk to school aged kids about Melanoma and hopefully prevent a Melanoma diagnosis. I need to put some stories together ..I especially need to accompany the stories with a picture of the person who has had Melanoma whether they are a survivor or since passed from this horrible cancer. I need these young people to relate and the best way to do that is to put together something that will keep their attention....in particular younger people and people that as a young person did something they feel may have led to a Melanoma diagnosis.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to share yours or your loved ones story with others so that we can make a positive impact and save lives with awareness..... Please help. I look forward to hearing from you.
