Urging lawmakers to ban indoor tanning for minors [Letter]
As a melanoma survivor, I know the pain and uncertainty of going through treatment. My melanoma was probably caused by years of being outdoors as a kid before sunscreen was invented. I am grateful for the treatment I received at Johns Hopkins Hospital that saved my life, and I now volunteer for the American Cancer Society to help others. I must now wear lots of sunblock and a hat any time I will be in the sun for more than a few moments.
