Know Your Body

Sean's Story

See the Signs

In 1993, when Sean was in high school, his teacher was teaching his class a lesson on how to spot signs of skin cancer. After a softball game Sean noticed a freckle that had turned into a mole, a sign of melanoma. Sean had the foresight to have it checked by a doctor, who confirmed that it was lymphoma. Luckily it was caught in time and Sean is able to tell his story here.
