Have Fun In The Sun With The Best Protection

This May the Melanoma Research Alliance and Bergdorf Goodman are working together to support Melanoma Awareness

People were absolutely bowled over when I was diagnosed with melanoma—it’s not as if I look like an Australian lifeguard or any- thing; I’m a pale, protected New Yorker!

When I was 33 and pregnant with my young- est. I had an incessantly bleeding mole, which was casually dismissed by my dermatologist as “absolutely benign.” I sought a second opinion, and the doctor told me I had an incredibly rare melanoma and that I needed to get to Sloan Kettering ASAP. I was told that I had Stage 2 or 3 Amelanotic melanoma, which would require immediate surgery of both the tumor, which had spread below the mole, and the surrounding lymph nodes in my groin. Good times!

The result were seven inch and two inch parallel scars and, thankfully, cancer-free lymph nodes. I asked my surgeon what would’ve happened if I hadn’t biopsied it. “You wouldn’t have made it three years,” he replied. A near miss. So now, while trying to make people laugh with my humor books, I also try to scare them. My jagged badge of honor reminds me how lucky I was. So slather on the SPF! Clichés exist for good reason: You can never be too careful.
