Celebrities With Melanoma or Skin Cancer

Last week it was announced that former President Jimmy Carter has Cancer. It turns out he has Melanoma.

I haven't written about Melanoma lately mostly because since my surgery, everything has gone well. My appointments with my Dermatologist have been uneventful. That's a good thing. I've been keeping out of the sun, doing the body checks...all the stuff you should be doing. So far all good. But you need to be aware that once you have Melanoma, you are much more likely to have it return. YOU NEED TO KEEP ON TOP OF THIS!!!!

The Carter announcement had me wondering how many celebs had skin cancer or Melanoma? The list includes politicians, entertainers and athletes. One good thing is the lack of baseball players and golfers. Apparently they know how to protect themselves from the dangers of the Sun.

Here's a gallery of celebs with Melanoma/Skin Cancer.


I love doing photo galleries. They are fun to work on and you can get a lot of information across in a picture or a video. This is the first in a week long series of Galleries. A few will be serious like this one and tomorrows on Suicide. I promise it'll lighten up after that! Here's another Gallery I did for the end of Melanoma Awareness Month.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
