Who is The Melanoma Man?
At the age of 32 I had a young family, new home, and great job. I was given a 50% chance of survival after being diagnosed with Stage 3 melanoma. My diagnosis changed my life. I wanted to become part of the solution to help prevent this disease. Fast forward to now, I remain cancer free for 12 years and have dedicated my life to this cause.
