A Note from one of our parents .

Hey Sandlotters , Since we are honoring all cancer survivors and remembering those who fought well but lost to this terrible thing . I asked our Sandlot Mom Janel Jernigan who has beaten skin cancer and is a wonderful advocate to write up something for us all .

Please take a moment to read and thanks ahead of time .

Coach Mike

Did you know that nearly 80,000 people will be diagnosed with melanoma this year? That's the equivalent of the entire population of Somerville, Massachusetts. Or Troy, Michigan. Or Buena Park, California. Imagine - an entire town: mothers, fathers, children, teens, friends and lovers - all diagnosed with the deadliest form of skin cancer. 
Melanoma can be deadly. But if you catch it early - before it spreads - it can be treated.
Check your skin - regularly.
Research has shown that patients, not doctors, are most likely to spot melanoma because they are most familiar with changes on their own skin. In fact, more than half of all melanomas are detected by everyday people - just by paying attention to their or their loved ones' skin. Learn how to perform a skin self-exam - and if you see something funny or different, make an appointment with a dermatologist. 

Talk to others.

Don't be afraid to ask about a mole you're not sure about. Ask your spouse, your partner, a friend or family member to help you keep track of suspicious moles and check hard-to-see places. Don't be shy - melanoma isn't, and it doesn't discriminate. Melanoma can develop on anyone - no matter their age, gender or race.
