When my old college friend Katie Couric—you may have heard of her—saw my hideous Instagram post sporting the three-inch surgical scar I incurred after a melanoma surgery, she asked if I’d write a piece for her daily newsletter, the (excellent) Wake-up Call. Of course, I said, and here it is.
Katie is big on cancer prevention and screening as many of you know, and so am I, a breast cancer survivor myself.
Thank heaven my diagnosis was early and I’m clear for now. But I am effing paying attention and pray you are too. Make an appointment with your dermatologist and get checked. Thank you. Many people love you and dont want to lose you, including me.
