Lifetime risk of getting #melanoma for an American is high. This is particularly true for caucasians. One in 38 white Americans will get skin cancer during their lives. Stats are better for African-Americans at 1:1000, but worse for Latinos with stats showing 1 in 172.

There is a paucity of research on cannabis & cancer. For skin cancers, there are not any clinical trials investigating the question of #cannabis medical efficacy. Rick Simpson was one of the rare patients whose basal cell carcinoma metastasized.

Tuesday was the prelim. Thursday is the main event.
Right now, I am resting between sprints.
Trying to breathe.
Inhale. Pray. Exhale.

The days and weeks ahead are going to be another life test.
(Pretty sure I learned this lesson already, but, okay, universe.)

The outpouring of concern and love I have received on here has been so far beyond anything I could have imagined. I feel so supported and strengthened by all these messages--too many for me to respond to all of them, but deeply, deeply appreciated.

Thank you so VERY much.

There are currently 17M Americans with #cancer.
41% of us will get some form of cancer in our lifetimes.
That's nearly half of us.
Everyone knows someone with cancer.
So we have to be vigilant and we have to take care of ourselves--lower that stress, first and foremost.
