What is your name? 

Hi, my name is Debbie.

Describe yourself in 3 to 5 words.

Caring, kind, friendly.

How did you discover your skin cancer / melanoma / skin condition and how long ago?

I discovered my skin problem through my rheumatoid arthritis which was diagnosed about 8 months ago. Unfortunately the medication I'm on does not react well with the sun and it caused red itchy rashes on my hands and very itchy skin on my arms.

What is your attitude towards sun protection today?

I have always been a person that stays out the sun and I don't like to be burnt.

What would you tell your 16-year-old self about sun protection?

All over tan has never worried me even from a child. I suppose if we new back then what we know now things would be a lot better.

I would tell myself to always cover up and protect against the sun.

Thank you Debbie for helping raise awareness for skin cancer, melanoma and skin conditions, and sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.

Can skin damage caused by the sun be repaired or even reversed?
Can skin damage caused by the sun be repaired or even reversed?

Your skin is your largest organ and has a long memory. Sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) damage is cumulative throughout your life. Research shows that sun damage contributes to more than 90% of wrinkles, brown spots, premature skin aging as well as precancerous and cancerous skin lesions.

Limiting sun exposure is very important. As the UV rays cause the most damage to the skin.

It often takes many years and sometimes decades for the effects to become visible.

But the good news is that taking care of your skin from now onwards may be able to help you to reduce the probability of skin cancers and minimise skin aging.

Your Story Series: Meet Andrew

I'm big advocate for sun safety, so I'm very proactive with looking after my skin. I'm always pushing my friends and family to be more sun safe, I think most know the effects of the sun, but not to the extent they should. Most don't seem to understand the UV index, and how quickly you can get burnt in the middle of the day. There's still a long way to go for sun safety education!
