And here's a little but about why I do these nights. I look forward to seeing you on the 13th of May!!

My passion for this is because in 2010 things were as good as it gets. Neil and I had a new born baby who was perfect in every way. We were living the life of new parents, we had no idea what we were doing but loving every minute of it.
I went for a normal check up at my GP and while there asked my GP to check a mole that I had. It had been there a while and had always had it checked but it had changed since the last time. It was darker and bigger. The GP took one look at it and told me it had to come out. Soon. I had my baby with me and didn't want to get it done there so made an appointment for the next week.
I went back the next week and had my mole cut out. It was on my back, near my right shoulder. My GP told me not to worry. It was probablly fine. She would call me as soon as she had the results.
I got a call a few days later. She wanted me to see a specialist. The results were inconclusive. The specialist would explain it to me in more detail.
A few days later I went to see the specialist. He explained that it could be Melanoma. But it might not be. They neeeded to take more away from where the mole was to be sure. To be honest I don't remember a lot of what he said. I do remember him saying the survival rate was very high these days, it wasn't a death sentence. I kept thinking of that ad that was on TV. The one where the mum had lost her battle. I didn't want that to be my story. I had a new baby. Didn't he know I had a new baby? This couldn't be happening to me. So I decided it wasn't happening to me. I couldn't freak out over what might be. There was a good chance it wasn't, that's what I decided to focus on.
A few weeks later I had day sugery. I decided not to tell my Family and Friends. I needed to know what I was dealing with before I told people. I needed to get my head around what was going on. Did I mention I had a new baby? That was my focus. I know now that not telling people was a mistake, yes I was being selfish. But I didn't want to worry people and I didn't want to hear everyone's story.
I went back to the specialist to find out what the news was. I was ok. I WAS OK. It wasn't Melanoma but it was a very bad mole, had i of left it my story would be very different. I need to have skin checks every 6 months as I am clearly high risk and if I ever notice a change in a mole i'm to go right back!
I now have a big scar on my back. Maybe 10cm. It's a big reminder for me. A reminder that my kids need sun care. That we all need suncare!
