    Skin Cancer, My Story.

    I was diagnosed with skin cancer a month ago. I've never been one to spend time in the sun, and living in the UK I rarely get the opportunity! I had an op to remove my basal cell carcinoma two weeks ago. It has left me with an 'interesting' scar on my right forearm. My ever...

    I live in Vancouver - it's raining eight months

    of the year. But I slap some 45 on my face first thing after showering. Prevention through protection is the only scientifically proven form of "anti-aging."
