Its been a little over a year since I lost my friend Ashley Trenner to Melanoma. Losing a friend like Ashley has impacted my soul in ways that I wish I knew how to put into words for you. She continues to be such an inspiration to me everyday. So much of my memories and conversations with her are treasured and very personal – but one commitment I have not kept quiet about is Ashley’s wish to save lives. This wish came true on March 27, 2014 – Governor Jay Inslee signed Bill 6065 banning anyone under the age of 18 to use tanning beds here in Washington State.
Many more states still need to do this too! So keep sharing her story with your friends and family! Ashley left us all a beautiful gift that needs to be heard! xoox, tracie
