How I healed after Melanoma (Skin Cancer)

This is how nicely my foot healed and it looks even better now. The graft was taken from my thigh where I have a few freckles so now Im getting some freckles on my foot, haha. I try to keep sunscreen on it when I wear sandals or bare feet. I was lucky to catch my Melanoma early and they still had to remove so much tissue around the tumor. My dad wasn't so lucky. Passed away at age 48 from same cancer. Seeing what he went through and how he suffered however made me notice mine earlier than I would have. I inherited not only his freckles!
