Hello. My name is Jessica and I am currently in the 10th grade at Plantation High School in Broward County. One of my classes is an Anatomy class. One requirement for that class is a research paper on a disease. I chose skin cancer. One of the things needed for the paper is 30 cases of people with the disease. I am asking, here, for any of you that may be able to help. I would not need you're name, the only information I would need from you would be you're age, gender, ethnic background, occupation, education, and where you live (not exact, the state would be fine.). I would truly appreciate any help you could possibly give, and if you do not wish to share this information, thank you anyways. You can contact me at my e-mail (mmm_poptarts@misery.net) And once again, thank you for you're time.

hi- my name is Julie and I live in Washington state. I am a 40 year old white female. I work in the membership department of a health insurance company and I have a high school diploma and some college. I have had basal cell skin cancer for about 14 years. The different thing about my cancers, is that I only get them between my nose and belly button. The reason for that is because I had radiation for hodgkins disease 20 years ago, between my nose and belly button. So basically my skin cancer is caused from the radiation. Hope this helps.

Hello, Jessica. My name is Cathy. I am now forty-six. But I first contracted skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma)when I was 39 in a very unusual place: my vaginal area. I had a second case exactly five years later, same place, but in a lower area, this after a vulvectomy and lymph node removal. This time I had to undergo chemo/radiation. I am female, white, college graduate from Springfield Illinois. For the last 22 years, I have been working at the Illinois Dept of Revenue, for the last ten years as a tax specialist. Let me know if you need any more information. If you would like to contact me personally on e-mail, my address is cathyb72@msn.com.
