Dr Erica Harris has been sharing her story of cancer, transplants, single motherhood, and a new-found lease of life after receiving just sixty days to live.
“My happiness today, depends on my ability to create experiences and memories in the way I dream of – tomorrow, next week, next month and for the rest of my life. In order to do this, I need my health.”
“When I was diagnosed with skin cancer last year, I felt like I just wanted to hide inside forever. But I have a life to live… So, I still go outside, I just cover up and pay attention to how long I’m out in the sun.”
“A mole smaller than a five pence piece to Stage 3 melanoma of the lymph glands. The highs and lows as your life holds in the balance of test results and diagnosis… I waited too long to get seen.”
“As a fulltime sailor, I am aware of the impact light has on my skin. I am super excited to share more information with you and to raise awareness about it!”
“The sun, its angle, and direction, matter a lot for my safety when I jump off a mountain… As a full-time wingsuit base-jumper, I end up being rather light obsessed!”
“Light is my energy, it is my fuel… I spend every day outside doing extreme sports and I need to be very cautious. Understand the full impact of light exposure on your skin and how to protect yourself.”
