    Just started with a small sore on shoulder which I did nothing about for a while except put dressings on. Then went to Dr when did not heal.

    Hi June,



    It would be great for you to share your story to others in the skin cancer community. People can learn and benefit so much from other people's experiances.



    Kind regards,
