Check-In: See a Dermatologist for a skin screening
Last week, while doing one of my Check-Ins for the Check-Ins for Check Ups program to raise money for Children’s Health Fund, I “scheduled a dermatologist appointment for a skin health checkup." At that appointment, I had them look at a mole on my back, I’ve had since I was young. After the doctor analyzed it, as irregular, he recommended that it be surgically removed. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being Melanoma cancer, he rated it as high as a 7. So, tomorrow I will be having a surgery to remove the mole and have it sent to the lab for testing. I will keep you posted on the results, but the important thing is that I recommend everyone who has the access to schedule a check up for a skin health screening. Early detection is the most powerful tool in fighting melanoma and other skin diseases, so schedule that check up and when you do CHECK-IN at the Check-in for Checkups website and Clorox will donate .10 cents per check-in to Children’s Health Fund to help provide health care access to children in under served communities.
If you haven’t already, please sign up for an account on Check-in for Checkups and Check-In every time you do a healthy activity and increase the amount of funding CHF will receive through this program from Clorox.
I am currently working with The Clorox Company for the Check-in for Checkups program that benefits Children’s Health Fund (CHF).
