Where I am from we have the highest rate of melanoma in the country and maybe in North America. My sister has been fighting this insidious cancer for two years. Hoping last operation will prevent metastasizing anywhere. Wish we could make it unpopular to get a tan. Tanning beds are the worst. thank you for sharing this.
So sorry for all cancer victims. Unfortunately, we all have these victims and suffering in our families. Great design to share to get attention to this harmful habit of overdoing the sun.
Thankyou.My husband is immunosupressed having had a heart transplant so is more at risk of skin cancer.
this is a brilliant reminder. Thank You again,Marilyn
Pray he stays well & healthy & God bless him & his organ donor and family!!
Thank You ..My husband is fighting melanoma ..
My sister died from malignant melanoma. Ladies, watch your moles. She had a mole on her leg that changed colors with each of her three pregnancies. No doctor took her seriously when she mentioned it to them. After the third pregnancy the mole fell off. That was the initial spot of melanoma. Just a few months later she had stage 2 with tumors under her skin. Fourteen months later she passed away after every kind of treatment known at the time. Check your moles and have them checked out if they change in any way.
me too! good call my friend Hugs Loralye
My son is a surviver from Hodgesons Lymphomer and my Dh has survived a melanoma on his back from too many hours working in the hot sun .so every dollar counts for reserch. Hugs Joyce
I am going to the Cancer Greatest Moning Tea this week have to take a secret gift so I will put this on a towel thank you. Hugs Joyce
I am having another skin cancer removed next week. Oh, if I had only known what a tan could do to you.
Great design. Thanks
This is a really great item I am sure I will wear
Thank you. I am lucky. I an autoimmune patient.
SPF 50 factor cream on winter and summer.
Thank you I pray for my daughter who is also a sun worshiper and salon tanner but at 38 I cannot tell her what to do.
Thank you very much
thank you for making this badge. What you say is very true. As a retired hairdresser in my pass years of doing hair. I had found my of my custmer with skin cancer due to the sun when I was living Florida.Be very careful and use lots of sun screen
thank you again
Thank you for this, sorry about what your going through. I never did spend much time in the sun when I was younger and now I'm glad that I wasn't into tanning. I hope this will make the girls think twice when they see us wearing this. Juanita
Thank you, Vicky! HGugs, Lidia
So true and so worth sharing with all. I think this is great for a tote bag.
Don't know how I missed this one before but thank you for doing this design and sharing it :)
THANK YOU FOR SUCH A IMPORTANT MESSAGE .
Thanks! My husband had in situ melanoma removed recently. Fortunately caught by smart observant doctor early enough. Now has to go for full body exam every 3 months for 3 years then every 6 months for two more years. Very embarassing but vital. I'll make tee shirt & wear to his dermatologist's office.
Important message. Thank-you!
My sister-in-law had skin cancer and it was bad
This is important can it be stitched as FSL or a badge or patch? Thanks Live Laugh Download Stitch!
Thank you, one of my friends just had surgery to remove something on her chest and was told it was cancer. She always is sunbathing and going to the spa's for tanning. I tried to warn her. Maybe now she will listen.
Hi Vicki. Couldn't download this design fast enough. How ironic, yesterday I was at the hospital having my three monthly check since I had a melanoma removed from my eyebrow a couple of years ago. Here in Brisbane Australia you have to have checks for five years after a melanoma is removed. Like yourself every time I go to the hospital, they are either cutting BCCs out, burning skin lesions or doing surgery. Please listen to Vicky you young ones, pain is not pleasant. Thanks for sharing this design. I will be embroidering it on a blouse. Shirley
Hi I am from Brisbane too and all my family has been touched by skin cancer . There was no such thing as sun cream when I was growing up paying for it now Hugs Joyce
Yes way back when we weren't aware and now years later some of us are paying for those days when we frolicked in the Lake or Ocean and lay on the sandy beach for hours - tan always made you look good after the pale faces of winter, but now those days are taking their toll on our skin - no fun Vicki - take care... hugs x0x0x0x
thanks hope all will go well for you, I too love the sun and have had a few scares, so very much more careful now. difficult as I love the sun and the warmth.
Thankyou for this very nice design, with a serious message.
THANK YOU .... I'M SURE I'LL GET TO USE IT ...SADLY ...I HOPE YOUR DOING GOOD.. LOOKING TAN JUST ISN'T WORTH IT....
Thank you so much for sharing! My prayers are with you!!!!
thank you. It is a real concern.
Thanks for sharing. I am from the "land of the sun" Arizona. We had no idea how dangerous the sun was when we were young. Still love it, but know better than to just bake in it. My GrandFather passed away from complications of melanoma. We have to get the work out!
Very nice ribbon! Thank you!
I too had a skin cancer removed last Thursday the 2nd. I am very fair skinned and a redhead. Yes, I too spent my younger years outside, in the sun, without any protection. Lotion and sunscreen were not readily available back then! I will put this patch on my everyday long sleeved shirt.
Thanks again, Bonnie
What a great ribbon. Thanks for thinking of it and sharing.
My sister has had a skin cancer taken off twice. That<br />was a few years ago and keeps check with her doctor.<br />And your right this is a Serious message. I wish <br />my daughter would listen. Thank you for sharing.
Very nice Vicki. Thank you for sharing. My husband had a spot behind his leg and I kept asking the Dr to check it. After several years he got skin cancer on his ear and nose. They took off the spot on the leg and it had a cancer behind the spot.
I really appreciate this design and sentiment. Thanks for thinking of others while (hopefully) releasing some of your frustration & stress at the same time. God Bless! Kathy
Love this, important reminder...thank you.
Thanks as always, Vicki. I feel very strongly about covering up outdoors. Very important message indeed.
Thank you so much. My son had melonoma a few years back as he is a sun worshipper. God Bless you.
Thanks! I too have "been there",I go to get checked every 6 mos.
Thank you so much for sharing your Beautiful Caring design. This is such a important message to get out to people of all ages. I hate sun burns there is no relief you just have to wait days for the pain to go away. Your message will wake up some people that's great! Thank you!

Children shouldnt have to suffer such things . I thank you for the Pattern/design I will make it for a few people with skin cancer at the hospital .
Sadly I too, have had to remove skin cancer from my nose.Scared me when he said, if he couldn't get it all with the surgery, I could lose my nose. No one takes this seriously. I like to swim when I was younger, always out in it. Now I go out late to swim, before sunset.Thank you for the design andsorry about your cancer.*& Hugs-Toogie
Need to make this for my sister. Her years of sun baking has caught up with her also. Nice thought out design.
Thank you Vicki. This is a great design with a serious message.
GREAT JOB everyone should get this!!!!
Thank you Lillian
Thank you. I caught my DH's first spot on his back years ago. Now we check regularly. Check your loved ones!
Excellent advice since we usually don't look for what may be "behind" us. Kathy
Thank you. This is a important reminder. Thank you for all the digitizing you do for us.
