As a teen their is many things I can do with my time. When watching the pain my Poppy has gone through with his skin cancer. I wanted to educate others in regards to Skin Cancer Awarness and Protection. I want to advocate to everyone, helping educate each community. This is very close to my heart, and something I felt some people do not understand.
John P. Dougherty Sr. "Jack", is my Poppy. I am also named after him "Jacklyn M. Dougherty". At a young age he has talked to me about the dangers of the sun. Sadly my Poppy has had multiple sun cancer removed from his body. The surgeries are very painful and we pray for him to get better.
My mission, advocate to a class of high school student. Educating and praying that they pledge to protect themselves from sun. #knowyourbody #seeyourdermatologist
