Team: Shade Squad
My name is Melissa Klein and in 2001 at the age of 23, Melanoma was found in two locations on my back. I am grateful that during a routine dermatology exam for some acne cream, my dermatologist Dr. Annette Cohen noticed the areas that needed to be biopsied. I was shocked when I received this diagnosis. I never used a tanning bed, my parents insisted on sunscreen, and I frequently wore a t -shirt over my bathing suit. I enjoy the outdoors and make sure to always wear sunscreen, my hats, and my sunglasses! This May I will celebrate my 40th birthday and I am proud to say I am a melanoma survivor!
Purpose: I have created this team in honor of all my fellow survivors of Melanoma and those that are still fighting.
