this post, my own mole removals, and my dad's battle with other forms of skin cancer inspire these words.
my mom and dad are doctor people. (I say this in the most loving of ways.)
first, they know a lot of doctors. second, my mom has logged countless volunteer hours on the local hospital's women's board. and third, they use them. growing up, this gave me a sense of comfort. if I needed a doctor, mom and dad would know who to go to.
I can also so remember protesting when my mom would make yet another appointment that would require yet another mole be removed. thankfully (due to my mom's diligence) all of mine have been benign.
then, a few months ago, I found myself standing in her shoes. this time spencer was the patient and I was the mother saying "take it off" to the doctor. I refused the "we can watch it" offer and was thankful for my mama instinct...the mole came back "suspicious."
I trust you'll watch this brief video and take action if necessary! don't wait another day!
