If you could speak to your 16 year old self, what would you say? Would you talk about your fears? Your future? Your family?

This great video from the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund (via @IanLyons) tells the story of real people who have been touched by melanoma. Watch it. Think about the word “touched” and what the impact of that touch is. And then pass this video on to all the 16 year olds you know.

Melanoma is a young person’s disease and it spreads fast. And if you are thinking that extra zap on the tanning bed is worth it. Think again. Think again and live a lot longer. The world’s at your feet – just make sure you live long enough to experience it.
