27 year old Tawny Willoughby from Alabama was diagnosed with skin cancer when she was 21, and unsurprisingly she was big into using sun beds — 4 or 5 times a week.
Since discovering she has skin cancer she’s been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma on 5 different occasions and squamous cell carcinoma once.
She decided to post this selfie online to warn others about the dangers of tanning without sunblock, and you might want to brace yourself because it’s pretty gruesome…
Holy shit balls. Safe to say it’s best to take the small, simple precautions necessary to avoid ever looking like that. All you have to do is wear sun block (and avoid tanning beds). Easy.
Respect to Tawny for being brave enough to share this with the world.
