Date Diagnosed: 08/12/2016
An unsuspicious mole had changed over the last month producing a tiny red bubble. I wanted it removed because it was “ugly.” No one suspected a thing! Came back to be stage 11B melanoma. I had a wide excision, skin graft, and lymph node removal. The skin graft did not take, and a major infection occurred. I had to have a second surgery. These left me significantly disfigured.
