Hi, my name is Olivia Baxter.
I’m a caring, sporty and enthusiastic person.
I have a skin mole on my face which has been examined and is not a cancer but still needs to be watched for any change. This was discovered 6 years ago and I need to have another one soon. You shouldn’t take any risks with your skin.
I usually wear a hat, put on sunglasses and apply sunscreen regularly.
I would tell my 16 year old self to take optimal care of your skin because it can be damaged, which can be life threatening. Being a red head girl I burn like crazy!
Thank you Olivia for helping raise awareness for skin cancer, melanoma and skin conditions, and sharing your story with us and our Solbari Community.
