SKIN CANCER AWARENESS IN MAY






May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. People who have POTS often have autoimmune disease as an underlying cause. And people with autoimmune disease have a higher risk for all types of cancer including skin cancer and lymphoma. 

I can tell you from personal experience, it's not fun to have chunks carved out of you and then have to wear makeup to cover the scars. I have a couple of scars that are bad enough that I tell people I have been in a knife fight. 

Wear your sunblock people.
