That's My World Tuesday: Melanoma Monday

Since I am writing this post on Melanoma Monday which is always the first Monday in May (an event to raise awareness about this cancer), I thought I'd use a photograph I took last year on the way into my dermatologist's office. Going to a dermatologist four times a year is part of my world, as well as being followed by an oncologist for stage III melanoma. Anyone interested in learning more can go to my other blog and read my 2008 melanoma monday post. I did one on that blog for 2009 but the 2008 one is more thorough.

Lovely photo but I was most interested in your referal to the earlier post. My husband was diagnosed last year; a small, symmetrical growth that his doctor thought insignificant but thankfuly sent him for a biopsy anyway. That is good information.

Hoping you are now well

A very worthwhile cause, beautifully highlighted. Blogging can reach out to so many of us as we all know someone who has been affected

Beautiful flowers and photo. I hope for a full recovery and less visits to your doctor.

A lovely arrangement, to bring awareness to something not quite as pretty, but just as real.

A friend was diagnosed with Melanoma. He was ignoring a mole that had changed in shape and size. Thank goodness for the nagging and insistence of a loving wife! It had spread to several lymph nodes, but he survived.

Awesome flowers. Thanks for raising awareness this month. I wish being tan wasn't still so popular. I hope you are doing well.

That center piece is a work of art and the color contrast is lovely!
