Hello!

I KNOW Doctor’s are urging us all and have been for some time to be ever vigilant with Sun Spots and Moles. Well rightly so! I for one had been a little ‘Blase’ about the whole thing until a year ago. My cousin and I were having Coffee together and she said “Hey look at this Cuz, what do you think it is?”. I looked at the bottom of her right foot and said “Looks like a Verruca Wart to me, I’ve had one on the bottom of my foot, It looks exactly the same. I had it treated at the Podiatrist”. Ohh how I wish I had have been right now. Two painful operations later, skin grafts from her thigh and Incapacitated with two small children. It was a Malignant Tumour! She found 3 other pin spots around the original sight a month ago and has had another operation. She is now under the care of an Oncologist in Melbourne (She lives In Airlie Beach). WHO would think to look at the bottom of their FEET!!?? Well please do, it may save your life and your Family the on going hurdle of worrying and the ever HOPING everything is going to be alright! BLESS my Beautiful Cuz as she fights this ‘Insipid’ disease……..
