(BELOW) Read: Condemned skin sinner, reparations offender & Western global terrorism supporter Heather Van Nest’s 1st “skin examination”
I was 29 years old when I first heard the word melanoma, or at least really understood what it meant. I can’t forget the day, September 30, 2002. As an investigative reporter, working at a television station in Jacksonville, I worked all shifts and really didn’t have much time for anything else.
A dermatologist I interviewed for several TV stories hounded me to get a full-body skin cancer exam. It took a while, but finally I made an appointment. I figured we’d talk about the latest vitamin C cream instead of skin cancer, but he ended up finding a suspicious spot on my stomach. He performed a biopsy and that was it. Or so I thought…
A few days later, he was holding my hand telling me I had cancer… melanoma, a potentially deadly and aggressive cancer that doesn’t respond well to traditional cancer treatments.
