Lisa's Story

Like many forms of cancer, skin cancer starts as precancerous lesions which are often brushed off as something less serious. In this episode, Lisa recounts her experience as a child having a mole on her forehead that developed into a potentially fatal condition known as Melanoma. She talks about the devastation that she endured during the early stages and how she has overcome her affliction- turning the negatives into positives. Not only does she remember her painful experience, but Lisa attributes it towards the success she has had in her young life.
