Skin Cancer Awareness Month: An Unlikely Patient
Date:5/15/2013

es Cancer Institute, a division of 21st Century Oncology of California.

“I felt confident about starting radiation therapy because I work here and I know it works,” she says. “But the first time when they close that door, I was a little scared. Dr. Schiffner helped me through and after that, it was no big deal. It was easy and fast with no pain, no poking, or cutting. It was actually a really good experience.”

Over time, the basal cell skin cancer was eliminated, leaving Edna cancer free, but more vocal than ever about skin cancer prevention and awareness and a greater appreciation for her patients.

“I see things from the patients’ point of view even more now. I’ve always been at the front desk, encouraging them to have faith in themselves and promote positive thinking and positive feedback,” she says. “Now I can give them more and better feedback because I’ve had the experience. That makes me feel even better knowing that I can give my point of view for the patients.”

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and Edna Mayorga is committed to raising mindfulness of early detection and prevention of skin cancers like basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma or melanoma.

“I want people not to be afraid of their health. If you see something that is unusual, take care of it; get it checked out. Don’t be scared if you are diagnosed with basal cell because it can be cured. And don’t be scared of radiation, it works, especially on the face. Consider your options, this is a different way to treat skin cancer with minimal scarring and no cutting. I would highly recommend radiation treatment.”
