Look, I Got Cancer From Solarium! She Lives in Real Life Hell!

I had my own solarium at home, like many of my friends. But, back then, I wasn’t thinking about my future.

Toni Vilobi (27) got skin cancer after getting tan in solarium. As a teenager, she used the solarium 5 times a week.

“I had my own solarium at home, like many of my friends. Everyone was doing it. Back then, I wasn’t thinking about the future nor about a skin cancer.” – says the brave medical nurse from Alabama.

She was diagnosed a skin cancer when she was 21 years old. Since then, the tumor was reoccurring six times. She is constantly seeing doctors, but every time the tumor is gone, they find her a new one.

She photographed herself when the tumor was affecting her skin and posted the picture on her Facebook profile. She became a Facebook heroine.

“Wear sun protective skin cream and use self tanning lotions. You have only one skin and you have to take care of it. Learn from others’ mistakes. Don’t let the tan keep you away from seeing your children growing up. This is the biggest fear for me.” – she posted.

Toni is treating her skin with special creams and the doctors remove the tumors from her skin with liquid nitrogen.

Because of that, this mother of one boy, has deep scars on her face.

“Check every spot that seems strange or is bleeding from time to time. The earlier you find it, the bigger the possibility is that it won’t leave you a disgusting scar and won’t make metastasis”. The melanoma leaves awful consequences.

It can kill you.
