Katie Wilkes


Katie Wilkes is a 20-something melanoma survivor “learning to love the skin I was born in.” After years of tanning, Wilkes was diagnosed with melanoma, but with early detection was able to avoid chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Today she blogs and advocates for greater awareness for skin cancer and the dangers of tanning, as well as the need for young readers to overcome insecurities, increase self-esteem, and challenge current perceptions of beauty.
