I wish I could express the intense fear I felt the day I found out I had Melanoma. That feeling along with the waiting and uncertainty alone has changed my life forever and made me wish 1,000 times that I’d done a few things differently just a couple years ago. (Starting with covering up at the beach!) That fear is also something that I am certain would change you too. May is Skin Cancer Awareness month and seems like the most appropriate time to share this important information … and tell you about a really cute and wearable line of sun protective clothing that I am so excited about!

Amanda is a very young (27), vibrant personality who is the picture of health. However, just a few years ago, Amanda noticed something unusual about her skin that led her to obtain a shocking diagnosis: cancer.
Since May is Melanoma Awareness Month, I recently interviewed Amanda to find out how she discovered the abnormality and what she is doing now to protect herself from skin cancer.
Q: How old were you when you first noticed that something wasn’t right about your skin?
I was 24 when I first noticed what I called a “mark” on my breast. I didn’t call it a mole at first because it was just a dot and it had just recently appeared.
