If only we had known then what we know now! I am fair-skinned also and longed for that tan. I even used Crisco as tanning oil in high school. Now I'm scared to death. I've already had a spot removed at 31. Thinking about your friend. . .

Yep, I remember the baby oil. Frying ourselves every summer. Your friend is so beautiful and courageous. I NEVER sunbathe any more. And having had breast cancer, I am certainly aware of every little bump and lump. My thanks to her for sharing her story. And my prayers that this new treatment works.

Sent the video to my kids who always "forget" to put their sunscreen on and come home RED... ugh. Hope your friend will have a wonderful outcome!

Ashley is absolutely gorgeous! How courageous of her to spread her message. She's proof that pale skin is beautiful, she looks like porcelain!

Dear Tracie, Thank you and your good friend for spreading the word of this horrible cancer. I will send it to my niece Audrey. And all my nieces who are so young and want to be tan..I just saw a clip on TV about the hidden Melenoma. Can even hide under your toe nails..
