I did not have the opportunity to become close with Samantha. Some of my mole mates were very close to her and that is how I 'met' Samantha. I was amazed by her overwhelming desire to educate others. The woman had passion. I will always remember and be inspired by it.
Yet again, I am reminded of why I fight so hard to educate others. Without education, there will be many others who will die too soon thanks to "just" skin cancer.
I will continue to educate--even at the chance of pissing off others--
