Anyone out there have a teenage daughter who had
melanoma at 6 years old, surgery removed it all, so she is 8 years without a relapse, but we have a difficult time convincing her to wear sunscreen. She says we are driving her crazy about the sunscreen. We live in south florida, so as you know, it is critical. Any suggestions for getting out of the nagging stage
and getting her into the responsible stage?
