Join Anna's Journey to share some answers to these questions.
Delegate Kirill Reznik has introduced House Bill 310 into the Maryland State Legislature.. he is asking his fellow delegates to help protect our teens from the deadly impact of tanning beds... The bill will block the use of tanning beds by anyone under 18... a move that advocates for Melanoma skin cancer assures us will make a difference in the increasing rate of Melanoma skin cancers...
Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer... studies estimate someone dies of melanoma skin cancer every day in the USA... and more throughout the world. IN Maryland, the incidence of skin cancer is on the rise... the incidence of melanoma is on the rise...
MORE needs to be done to protect all Marylanders from this horrific side effect of indoor tanning - tannign beds, sun lamps, etc...

During this heartfelt, yet informative show you will learn what Melanoma did to the lives of sax player for the band Sha Na Na, Michael Brown and his wife Amanda. Tune in and get informed!
"Downtown" Michael Brown, originally from Newport Beach in Orange County Ca., now hails from Brigantine, New Jersey. The son of renowned jazz pianist, Ronnie Brown, Michael has played the saxophone since the age of nine.
A regular on the Las Vegas and national touring scene, he has performed with the likes of, Buckwheat Zydeco, The Platters, Lil' Elmo and the Cosmos, Shake Rattle and Roll, Launi Kristopher, Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88's, the classic show at Ivan Kane's Royal Jelly inside Revel Casino Atlantic City, and now Sha Na Na.
When not rocking, he is the Coola Suncare Education Ambassador, the Executive Director for the Melanoma Education Foundation Nevada chapter and part time Racecar driver. Michael has a solo CD entitled, WITH ALL MY HEART, an original eclectic blend of music from Pop-rock to Jazz-funk, punctuated by a ballad dedicated to melanoma awareness and the memory of his wife Amanda. It is available on the CD Baby website.
Michael's book "FINDING N-E-D: NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE" is now available from Tate Publishing. It is a heartfelt true story of love, loss, and hope. Diagnosed with malignant melanoma, Amanda Faye Brown started on a long, difficult journey through the disease, and had the wisdom and foresight to gather her thoughts into a journal. Compiling these journal entries and interspersing them with his own thoughts, telling their story from first meeting through marriage to tearful days at the hospital, Michael Brown shares the struggles and sorrows that came with his wife's cancer.

Staff Sergeant M. David Davis, USA (ret.), is a decorated combat veteran, military advisor & nuclear weapons specialist. He is also a soldier dying within months. Not in the line of duty, but death due to negligence. His death will be as a result of the Veterans Administration doctors who misdiagnosed his illness.
According to SSG Davis, during “the last 10 years, I have been seen by the VA for sores which they gave me antibiotic creams & antibiotics by mouth with never having a biopsy. Last fall, I complained again to the VA & I was told, "Maybe warts or have I ever had HIV." In February, I complained to the VA again and told my VA doctor who refused the records and the civilian doctor’s card to call. The VA doctor said, “I do not want an outside opinion and would not call.” After much complaining about a cyst on the right side of my face the doctor planned to have it taken out.
Two days later I was diagnosed with metastases malignant melanoma, stage 4. Further tests revealed, 6 tumors in left lung, 2 tumors in right lung, tumors in breast, neck and other areas. During my last meeting with the VA Oncologist, he would not offer me chemo or radiation because it would do no good. I asked for referrals to civilian organizations and or experimental treatment. My answer was. “The VA does not do referrals or will help me get into any research at civilian or pay any expenses”
The final result is I am looking for my own burial sites. I was not referred to social services at the VA to help me. So what is the outcome? I fought for my country and my country brings me home to die in its own government sponsored hospitals. If I had been properly diagnosed, referred, and or a simple biopsy performed ten years ago I would not be dying and I would be able to watch my children marry and grandchildren grow.”

Tonight's special guest is JoAnn Kerschner from Baltimore, Maryland, a child abuse survivor, RN, Nursing Director and Mental Health worker who's still in the early stages of her recovery. "My father died in 2011 from melanoma. I took care of him in his last few days of life (on home hospice) with the exception of his urinary catheter," JoAnn writes. "I could not look under the covers at the catheter; it brought back too many memories. I had little emotion and actually prolonged his life. You see, I am a Registered Nurse and have witnessed deaths of patients that I cared deeply for in my 30 year career. I never had a relationship with my mother, it was always distant, no bonding, no mother daughter moments, only continual narcissism, but yet somehow I found the strength to care for her for the next year. I hoped that I would always be chosen, good enough, but I never was." After her father's passing, JoAnn began her recovery in earnest, reporting she had a lifetime of memories. "I never forgot the details and I know my mother knew because I saw the sickness, the love of little girls and yes the picture of my mom wearing my pajamas, holding my stuffed animal, posing as a little girl for Daddy." JoAnn is grateful she has found a dedicated therapist (who still spends four hours a week with her), and the support of her husband and sons. "Is it over?" she muses. "No, it will never be over!" She says she's grateful to have the opportunity to share my story and join the NAASCA family. "I really need one! I am hopeful that some of your listeners will find strength in the fact that I am still in the beginning stages of my journey, I still go to counseling 4 hours a week, hold down a 60+hour/week job, and I am beginning to start my business HHOPE (Healing Hearts of People Everywhere) and make a difference."
