Keep Jillian and her family in your thoughts and prayers

In lieu of today's National Health Blog Post Month prompt, today I encourage you to visit Jillian's Journey with Melanoma, a blog written by the mother of a 23-year-old suffering from stage IV melanoma. Jillian and her family just got word that her treatments are no longer effective. Her family was told by doctors that "it will take a miracle for [her] to survive." Please keep Jillian and her family in your thoughts and prayers this week.

Melanoma, even though some people still think of it as "just skin cancer," can be deadly. Take care of your skin, even in the winter. The consequences of tanning beds and sunburns are so not worth it.
