Forever young....

Should we put appearance first infront of life....? She's a very brave young woman who raised the awareness about the danger of solariums.... 26 years old Clare Oliver lost her battle with skin cancer that had claimed a lot of lives before her.... Too young, too soon....


Clare wrote that: "After the 10th session I was starting to burn and it hurt, so I stopped. But I guess I stopped too late." That does sound like a severe UV burn, possibly caused by the frequency (every second day) and/or duration of her sessions....


Clare was diagnosed with a Melanoma three years ago when she discovered a strange lump under her arm.... The lump was removed and she carried on with her life, travelling overseas and completing a second university degree but the cancer came back to haunt her and her battle became terminal....


Today an anti-cancer fund was been created in memory of brave young Clare Oliver, who died this morning in hospital after spending her final days campaigning to raise awareness of the dangers cause by tanning salons.... Prime Minister John Howard responded by flagging uniform laws to regulate the industry nationwide....


I posted this topic to give my support to what she have started, but will be here no more to see the results of all the efforts that she've exerted into it for a good cause....


Clare's story has touched many people's lives, and i hope her family and friends can take some comfort in the knowledge that her willingness to make her story public will have a lasting legacy....


Sleep peacefully, your sweet heart and desperation to warn others should be remembered by your ever so proud family.... Your life was short, but very worthwhile in the bigger scheme of things....



"Life is everything and you grab it with both hands and embrace it".

Thank you po sa comment....! =D You know what, i thinks she's also a filipino.... Hindi ko lang masyadong naimbistigahan and background nya.... Pero palagay ko judging by her looks ay pinay sya na australian-born lang....

Anything that we overdo there's always a consequence. As they say...do it in moderation. However, it's done, and it can never be undone. Clare had passed on. Her memory, hopefully, will raise awareness to the dangers of over exposure to UV, either in tanning salons or outdoors under the sun.

Good post, Pepe.
