“I’m sharing my skin cancer patient experience in hopes that I can inspire you to care for your skin, be safe, and take it seriously.”
– Terri Cole



I don’t think I’ve ever shared this story publicly, but skin cancer awareness is a topic that is near and dear to my heart (and my nose!). If my journey can inspire even a handful of you to start a new routine of daily sun protection, sharing it will have been worthwhile. 

If you’re someone who knows you should be using SPF when you go out in the sun, but you still don’t do it consistently, this episode is for you, my friend, because I don’t want you to experience what I experienced. 

I’m sharing my very personal story (and some raw pics!), as well as resources and ways you can become more educated to take the very best preventative care of the skin you’re in!


  • 04:20 How I figured out that I had skin cancer despite two misdiagnoses
  • 06:30 The procedure I underwent to remove my cancer
  • 10:15 Preventative habits I learned to follow after my experience with skin cancer
    • 11:40 Self-examination and a body map
    • 16:05 The ABCDE rule for monitoring your skin
    • 18:00 Stay in the shade and stay covered

  1. Thank you for posting this Terri. I too had a miniscule area of skin on the tip of my nose that would occasionally ooze/ bleed when I washed my face. When I saw the dermatologist after having it for just over a month he was not that concerned but I told him I thought it needed to be biopsied and he leaned that way too and thankfully did the biopsy. It was a basal cell carcinoma. The Mohs had to be done to take it down 2 levels because the pathology showed it was spreading aggressively below the surface. I wound up needing general anesthesia for a nasal tip repair by a plastic surgeon the next day to repair the hole and reconfigure my nose and I’ve had to get used to my nose not ever looking the same. This is important information that you’re sharing!

    1. Hi Diane,
