“I find strength in being honest with you all and hope this helps others,” she said.
“Please let this be a reminder to take action on your own skin.”

The Vena CBD founder, who cohosts “Two Ts in a Pod” with Mellencamp, first opened up about her own diagnosis in 2017 and has since gone on to be an advocate for spotting signs of skin cancer.
"About a week later, she calls me and she’s like, ‘It’s melanoma.’ … I’d never heard those words before.” Thankfully, her cancer was stage 1 and “very treatable.”
In October 2018 she had another biopsy done on her breasts, taking to social media to share an update wit her followers.
