May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and #melanomamonday is on the first Monday of the month! Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, more skin cancers are diagnosed in the US each year than all other cancers combined. If you have melanoma or are close to someone who does, knowing what to expect can help you cope.

“I do believe Michael Scott did it better, but here’s my version. For 6 weeks every Day, I was locked down in this mask and zapped for 10 minutes. I lay there with mouth guards in, only able to breathe through tiny holes, trying not to swallow while I meditate as Jimmy Buffett is playing through the headset. This treatment was morbid. It was hard, and it pushed me to a place I never thought I would see. I chose to keep going and I fought...I FOUGHT to make it all 6 weeks. I kept this mask as a reminder for how strong I am. How much I have overcome. I have a long ways to go, but I will always chose to keep going. 

Trust me guys, wearing a face mask to Target or Trader Joe’s is nothing to complain about, I say that with the most love” -Jamie

Many patients, especially those with limited resources, must overcome numerous hurdles to access timely, high-quality cancer care. No one should be disadvantaged in their fight against cancer because of how much money they make, the color of their skin, their sexual orientation, their gender identity, their disability status, or where they live.

Thanks to partners like M&T Bank we will continue to fight for everyone to have the ability to benefit from the advances in research, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. Continue to learn more at
