Tanning-Obsessed Mother Dies From Cancer

Tanning has severe consequences.

A mother-of-three who has been tanning since she was 16 just died from skin cancer… she had 19 tumors throughout her body.

Donna Ballantyne hit up tanning beds twice a week, and developed melanoma nine years ago, and has spent the last decade battling off cancer.

Her death was not in vain, though, as she spent the last parts of her life spreading the word about the dangers of tanning and raising over $1 million for cancer charities.

Said Donna:

“If I could turn back time, I wouldn't have spent even one second of my life on a sunbed. I am convinced that if I had never been near a sunbed I would not have been left fighting for my life after skin cancer spread around my body.”

Our thoughts go out to her family.
