Time to switch it up from Feel Good Fridays to Feature Fridays because sometimes the compelling, important, really well-done videos I want to share just don’t feel that good.

My friend Tim (featured in the video below) was diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma at 21 years old. He and his (now wife) Amy were on a graduation trip in France when he discovered a spot on his arm. Given a 50% chance of survival over the next five years, he began intensive treatment and now, nearly 10 years later, he is an outspoken advocate for sun safety and awareness.

Skin cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer and one of the most treatable when diagnosed early. Take the no-tan pledge.
