Survivor Stories

Kayla Hensley, Stage II

Diagnosed  02/23/2015

Kayla was born with what’s called a congetial melanocytic nevus. On her scalp. At 8 years old we noticed a tumor had developed on her Nevus which later was diagnosed as Melanoma. Luckily we caught it early and she is currently cancer free. She still has a part of the Nevus on her scalp, which puts her at a chance of a relapse. She will soon do reconstruction surgery to remove the remainder of the Nevus and hopefully lower her chances of Melanoma returning. Skin checks are very important for your loved ones!
